Thumbs up Cedar Bowtie

So my wife had a girls night, which allowed me to head to the shop and turn out a new pen. It is a chrome bowtie style with cedar blanks used. 6 layers of CA used to finish with a Wax buff after. Thanks for looking! Comments welcome :)

I agree. Cedar doesn't get used enough. Especially the 2 tone.

Cedar isn't just for No#2 pencils!

Really like that you used a piece with the sapwood as well, just makes the heartwood show all that much better. And purty fit-n-finish as well!!!
