Greetings from Nebraska.

I just finished up a pair of Wall Street II pens from WoodCraft (kits made in Taiwan). One is Black Titanium and the other is Black Titanium and Titanium Gold. Both have Black and White Ebony blanks and were finished using my standard CA regemin. Drilling the ebony was a challenge. I drilled a pilot hole using an 8mm HSS jobber bit but when I started following it with the HSS 27/64 jobber it was kind of grabby, so I changed over to my HSS 27/64 bit with the pointy 90-degree tip made for drilling plastics and it drilled through the Ebony like there was nothing to it.

Anyhow, some pictures follow. - Dave

Here is a general picture (Click to Enlarge):

Here are the more "documentary" pictures showing the grain pattern as they were rotated:
Paralax in my pictures makes the Gold one look shorter but they are both the same length.

Very Nice. I like the wood. I was guessing it was goncalo alves until I read your post.

I also like the black titanium/titanium gold combination. Thanks for sharing.
