A PSI Rollester rollerball pen in chrome. The wood is ipe. The grain is subtle yet still pretty. Made a nice looking pen.

Very nice Jim. It reminds me of a Mesquite pen I turned many years ago, and my wife still uses. Very subtle grain but pretty. I used just a few coats of WOP so the pores are still visible and it feels nice to hold - wood, not plastic. This is how your IPE looks.

Well done.

I use Doctors Woodshop Pens Plus. It's a friction finish. I personally don't like a CA finish on wood. I like wood pens to look and feel like wood. CA makes them too "plasticy".

Hello there QQ
Yes. Have seen and read about what the "Good Doctor" had ordered in his Pens Finishes. Great stuff. Superb Finish.
Seeing that we can't get that here, had very good advice on making our own Juice. Got me Batch ready. Waiting to finish a Pen or two to try it out.
Thanks for the kind response.
