I just had to make these three pens. One is Ambrosia maple made from the cut off from a current project. I just could not throw it away. The other two are comfort grip pens that I tried to fractal burn for a customer but one did not burn well at all that other one had half the wood burned off. So I turned off all the wood from both of them and and made one hard maple burl and one Pistachio pen.

The lathe tool is a cutter made from and old parting tool. It is for boring holes that have to be real accurate. I saw a similar tool used and it can take very little material off on the side or the end. It is like a two way scraper. The handle is mahogany and walnut.

All these products were finished with EEE and Shellawax!

Cheers, Jim

Nice looking pens Jim. It would of been interesting to see a fractal burn one. Maybe next time. I’m checking out that tool. Pretty cool.

Thank you all for the nice comments.

Hi Dave, I have a birds eye maple one that I fractal burned- the customer saw that and wanted one with a comfort grip. maybe it was too cold in the barn but I could not make another one. And if you screw up the wood on the pen, you have to get it off and that is what I did to salvage the kits.

Hi Pottz, in my mind I do everything simple. I’m from the old school and adhere to the KISS principle. I sure wished they used that on cars today!!

Cheers, Jim

That is why I drive older cars and when it is time for a new on, it will be a ‘62 Chevy wagon with all new parts in it like it was back then..and I’ll be able to fix any thing on it.

cheers, Jim
