    Got excited last night and posted indoor crappy pics of my pen. These are a bit better, now you can see the true colour of it. I absolutely loved making this. Stabilised amboyna burl, kirinite rioja pearl finials, section and sleeves, black acrylic spacers, natural finish, jowo #6 nib

    Amboyna kitless

    G'day I spent most of today making this pen for myself. It is stabilised amboyna with kirinite rioja finials, section and sleeves. Natural polish and a Jowo #6 medium nib. This was a fun project, inspired by some of the kitless makers around the world. Pics are a bit cruddy, was getting dark...

    Problem with amboyna burl blank

    My grandson turned it down for a Wall Street III pen. The color and grain are outstanding! However, it has pits all over it. I have tried using thick CA but it was rough and light sanding didn't help. Acetone made it worse! Most of the CA is off but the pits are now white spots. It is...

    Ebony and Amboyna Over Under 12g

    Wasn't a huge fan of this kit when I first Saw it on Pen State. Back at the Triangle Pen Show this year I saw one, and thought, well thats actually not bad at all. Came across the Over Under at Exotics, and scooped one up last week in Gun Metal and Rose gold. Note to all...the 9/16" bit that...

    New Amboyna Carry

Carried it around like a egg, being ever so carful not to damage it until I took photos. Rhodium Jr Gent...

    Jr Gent I - Amboyna Burl

    Here is one done with Amboyna Burl acquired from another member here (thanks Garrett). The finish came out perfect but the "fit" needs a bit of work. Any advice on how to clean up the ends so they don't show the white bands would be appreciated. Thanks, Tom

    Amboyna Burl Triton

    I made this today .... Amboyna Burl on Triton Components. A rollerball but it will easily convert to a fountain. To bad they don't sell components that include each option. :eek::smile: That'll NEVER happen! :biggrin::wink: Comments and critiques welcome. Thanks for looking! :smile:

    2 Razors: Amboyna and Maple

    These are my first 2 razors. They were a lot of fun to make. The maple burl is for my father-in-law for his birthday. The two-tone amboyna is for me! I have heard that using wood for a razor is risky because of the water. To try to prevent cracking I put about 8 coats of CA on the outside...

    Majestic Jr. fountain

    My first attempt at turning a Majestic Jr. rollerball resulted in a nice pen that wouldn't "post", as the plastic threads got bunged up. So for my second try I decided to do a fountain out of Amboyna burl. =0) It was also my first attempt at adding blo to the finishing process with the CA.
