I had finally found what I wanted to do for my current favorite pen. (picture # 2) Decided to turn it with the order I had received from my neighbor. My pen is a Zen kit in black ti-chrome with a mosaic “Fig” blank.
My neighbor wanted to have some pens made for here whole family (x6). The pens all needed to have decals with their names. All of them are acrylic except for the 2 ends of the teachers pen. That one has Ziricote and Argentine Osage Orange at the ends. She selected both woods with here acrylic blank. I have turned Ziricote before and it cuts like butter. I had just bought the Argentine Osage Orange and had never worked with it before. It turned really nice too.
All Pens finished with 8+ layers CA and sanded up to 12,000.
Had a good block of time on Saturday and made good use of it I think.
All C & C welcome.
Thanks for looking
