This is a trim line pen that I modified to eliminate the center band. It opens by twisting the tip. The woods are red heart and cross-cut black palm. I wanted to show the palm end grain. The palm was unstabalized and the practice blank chipped out. The technique I used to prevent chipout was a square tip carbide chisel, tool rest raised, scraping at a steep angle.
Hope you like it!

Combination of Redheart and Black Palm - Excellent.

Looks great! I really like the black palm end grain. I need to remember that use. Also like that the red heart has some character. Nice work.

Thank you all for the likes and encouragement. I feel like my pile of lathe failures is bigger than my successes lately, so it feels good to get a win this week.
