Peroxide blonde or not, it's very nice, Anthony! So are the other two for that matter...even though the Wallstreet design is not one I'd turn for myself. I guess that's why our suppliers offer such a variety, eh?
Great job Anthony. I am currently working on a European desk set for a guy that I work with. I should have it done by the end of the week and I will post some pictures then. I'm making it out of the cocobola that I got off of this site from someone. I can't remember off the top of my head who it was. Anyway, great job and great selection of pens.
Bill, I do okay with the Wall Streets, not a top seller,
But surprising, I get clients that only want a cross refill,
So I push this vs a twist pen. I like how the one piece
design, doesn't break up the wood pattern & the mechanism
in the kit is a good one.
I like the wallstreet it has great balance, and you can do a lot with the pen. Although the best sellers in it are just like you did. Double taper makes a nice pen with that. Great for showing off unique woods.
If you are wondering about the darker one and why it won't finish good...I have found that the darker will have significantly more oils than the lighter pieces. With lacquer, you will probably have to seal with CA before putting it on. If you don't, it seems to be "patchy" and not cover good.
Thanks Anthony. Maybe I'll pick up one or two this weekend. I was planning on going to WoodCraft anyway to pick up a 37/64" drill bit for the Gentlemen's pen kit I have waiting to be turned. Man, that's a big tube!
