OK, just showing off a few pens that I made as gifts. (All custom requests) They are all made with some of the “Birdseye Pine” that I spotlighted in a previous project posting. (Check out the story on where I got the wood)

Top Pen: Rollerball Jr. Gentlemen’s II – Titanium Hardware
Middle Pen: Fountain Jr. Gentlemen’s II – Titanium Hardware and a band of Gaboon Ebony on the cap. (This friend made a comment on a prevoius pen that they liked the Ebony band.)
Bottom Pen: European Twist style – Black Titanium Hardware.

Finished with CA, sanded to 12,000 grit, then polished.

those look fancy nice job, Birds eye maple has got to be one of my all time favorites to look at, work with, and buy.
Holy cow 12,000 grit paper is like using a paper towel right.

Great looking pens! Can’t say I’ve seen birdseye pine before, but it sure looks beautiful.

Great color, well done . I think I might like birds eye pine for pens more than the dark woods. I will start saving some of this from now on and cut some blanks. Thanks.
