When I can't think what to make I return to a Slimline Kit and some likable blanks. I like the Blue Laminate and I added Lime Wax and Microcrystalline wax to the other.
Hope you like them please feel free to comment.
The Blue is very nice. I am not a fan of the liming on the other pen, just my personal preference. I have seen the liming done on oak pieces (chests, cabinets, etc...) maybe a little lighter wood so there is less contrast? Once again just my opinion.
I love the blue laminate but am not as struck by the limed one. Personal bias I freely admit. I ask so find the tapered in waist on the laminate more attractive than the barrel shaped one on the limed pen. ago my eyes this adds to t( flow and attraction .
I agree with the two previous comments, I'm not much of a fan of the lime wax or whatever it's called. Personally, to me, the bottom one, looks as if the blank wasn't cleaned before the finish added. I'm sorry, and I do hope you understand, and that my comment isn't to harsh.
