Started my Etsy shop to sell these pens ( http://www.etsy.com/shop/bogiwood ). Made using the Artisan Zen Rollerball hardware from woodturnerscatalog.com. That pen’s mechanics are fantastic, and I like the single large wooden body because it helps highlight the wood rather than to metal parts. From left to right, these wood species are: Red Mallee burl, Heart Pine, Padauk, White Oak, Bocote, White Oak, Cocobolo. And laying down is White Oak cut to highlight the end-grain. All finished with about 15 coats of CA glue, then polished.

I made the pen rack from walnut scraps. Finished with Arm-R-Seal.

Those are absolutely beautiful! And I am not normally a fan of most of the pen kits. I went to check your site and the link isn’t working for me.
