The first two pens are a couple of pens I made to do a pen swap with a guy from Australia. The first pen is made with Mesquite burl and I had to make it without the clip seeing Penn State Industaries sent the wrong clip with kits. The second is made with Desert Ironwood and is a Wallstreet II kit from Wood Craft. I used a CA and BLO finish on both of them. The last two pics are of the pens I got from the guy in Australia. The light colored one in new growth Jarrah and the darker is a wood the guy called raspberry jam. He says that the wood smalls like raspberry jam when cut and turned. He also sent me some of this wood to turn myself, so I will know soon if it reeally smells like raspberry jam. Let me know what you all think.

beautiful pens..nice work….
I’ve used PSI in the past and found them to be pretty good….if you havent tried them yet give Craft Supplies USA a look. The fit and finish, the over all quality of their kits is excellant. Their customer service is also very good.
Again, very nice work from you and your friend.

Nice work. Did you call PSI about the clips? I’ve had good service from them with replacement parts, it’s usually just waiting for the initial order to ship that takes forever.
