Default Desert Ironwood / Sirocco

Yes, I do turn a pen now and then.

Last week, I was at the shop of td smart working on a club project and afterwards, he says "Let's turn something"!

Tom supplies me with a piece of Desert Ironwood and a Sirocco pen kit (finial twist) from Signature Pen Supply.

Here is the result. The pen is finished with some Aussie Oil he had on hand.

The Desert Ironwood sure makes for a very nice pen!

Thanks Tom!!!

Yup, Ironwood does make for a nice blank.

Great fit/finish/final match to the kit.

Well done.

Very nice pen. Any Burl or DIW seems to be my favorite lately. Well done.

That looks very elegant.
One of my first attempts at a pen was with desert iron wood. My finish didn't stick. Someday I will disassemble it and try again.

Nice Charlie!
How'd the meeting go with Stuart Batty?
I'm really sad to have missed the day. (I even had a new vinyl background to try!)
