I had last week off from work. It did not go as planned in my shop but I did manage to complete this pen. It’s walnut that I cross cut the board to create a blank. It meant I was turning end grain but the grain is better than I hoped for. It’s finished with 8 coats of CA that was then polished. I did another with black and white ebony but the pen kit was god but for some reason had a chrome center band. I need to look into that.
