The Officers pen (Crooked Mill) is turned Texas Mesquite, the Steampunk is Texas Ebony (also Crooked Mill). The Texas ebony has good pattern but because it is dark it is hard to photograph (at least for me ). Finish on both is walnut oil as sanding lubricant and four coats Pen Plus with top coat of wax. So we have now completed pens 5 and 6. I just love pen pen turning.
