This is the pen kit I used. The finish specific metal finish is Rhodium.

Nice pen Wayne. A gift or for personal consumption?

Interestingly, some how I stumbled upon Nick Offerman site a few minutes ago and perused his slabs for sale. He has some of this wood called Amboyna. Huh, never heard of it before. Now, he is your project. Must be a California tree or sumpin’.
