I started making pens about 2 months ago. This is by far my favorite one so far. It is a European Style Pen made of Wenge wood with brass hardware. There are a few blemishes but practice makes perfect… Im pretty proud of this one!

Looks good. I’ve never turned wenge. How is it?

It was very easy to turn. From what I have turned so far, it has been the easiest to turn only second to walnut! (Keeping in mind that I’ve only turned a handful of different species lol)

Looks great! If you ever want a challenge, give snakewood a try. Nice job!!!
