This is pen # 3 from my “Beginners Pen Making Kit” I purchased from Busy Bee Tools.

My co-worker gave me a couple of pieces of Walnut and American Beech, so in return I will be giving him this pen made from that wood.

This is a Standard pen (the kit contains 5 of them), and I attempted some new techniques. (well, they’re all new to me)

One of the new techniques was the rope burn in the grooves on the top half.
I saw Carl Jacobson do this on his You Tube channel.

The second technique was a CA finish, but I buggered it up and had to sand it off. I decided to just do with Minwax.

Thanks for looking

Turned nice. Alot like the walnut, but had a slight sweet smell.
