Default My first two pens!

Not my first turned projects, but my first pens. Pretty pleased. Ebony for one and mallee burl for the other, Wall street II kits.

Thanks! CA finish, 6 coats of thin, 3 of medium. I hit it with 600 abranet, then EEE ultrashine before I went through my micromesh. Came out pretty good for a first try I think.

There's a good reason you are pleased - you should be! Very nicely done.

Nice pens. I love a nice brown or red mallee burl. I like ebony as well but my luck with it cracking has about crossed it off my list.
