I went on a binge of my best woods trying for my best pretty wood pen for the bash. It was tough to select my favorite, but in the end chose the Texas Mountain Laurel (mescalbean) because it is fairly unusual, and the color is moderate (not dark and not light). In the end I was happy with my 9th place finish. Here they are: in the Zen one is buckeye and the other two are black Ash, in the clicker they are amboyna, black locust, HRB, and mescalbean. And some better shots of the black locust and HRB by themselves.
