I made this pen a couple of months ago along with several others. I used them for christmas presents for a few people in my family. I made them out of a variety of woods. I dont know what type of wood I made this from , but I think it looks pretty dam good!!!

Good job Aaron. You are right these make fine gifts. Plus they give you an excuse (if you need one) to spend more time in the shop.

thanks for sharing.

that looks great. I’ve always wanted to try turning pens and i will when i get a lathe this summer. you can really go out of the box on turning pens because you can use really beautiful exotic woods that would be too expensive to use on any big project and make a great looking pen.
