Hi all,

These are the three last pens I’ve turned. On the first picture : top wood is aflelia burl, rollerball kit middle one is walnut (from the knot of this board), fountain * last one is ebony, fountain as well.

The kits are the Majestic. Having used the walnut pen for a while, these kits are not for small hands ! These pens are big !
The kits are a joy to use except that the drill size for the top part is not exact for the brass tube (or my drill bit is undersized).

Finish used is friction polish (1/3 shellac, 1/3 BLO, 1/3 DNA) followed by CA glue.

Thanks for watching

Pierre

Beautiful pens. Very nicely done. Doesn’t hurt that the majestic is my favorite component set.

Haven’t run anything bigger than a cigar pen, but these look fantastic. Great look in the color spread that you used. Thanks for sharing!

Beautiful! I love the Majestic kits, but I haven’t done a fountain pen, yet. Great job.
