Made a few more pens (and a pencil) this past weekend.
  • The matching set (#8 and 9) are a pen and pencil set based on the PSI Slimline kit in satin. They were made using Fishtail Oak and a CA finish.
  • #10 is based on the PSI Slimline kit in black. The wood was reclaimed Red Oak that my neighbor provided with a CA finish.

J I like the second one. That black really sets the wood off. How do you like the PSI kits? I have been using Craft Supplies kits mainly.

Thanks, I decided on the contrasting black since the oak was so light colored and relatively simple wood.

I have been VERY pleased with the PSI kits! So far, about 90% of the kits I have done have been from PSI (my starter set). The instructions have been very clear and I have had no problems with any parts or bushings. The 1 Rockler kit I have tried (Perfume pen) was also a good experience and I have a few more kits from them to try (Bullet pens). So far, the 1 kit that I have made from Woodcraft has been the most challenging, but I want to try a few more of their offerings before I develop a general opinion. I have not tried anything from Craft Supplies yet…
