Heres a cigar pen, made from Ziricote. pens seem like they should be easy, but I’m finding bowls way easier!

I think it looks good. I was having trouble with the barrels on my pens showing tool marks. I bought a Easy Tools roughing tool that has a square carbide head and it works as a scraper and now, no tool marks. May want to try that. I didn’t notice any tool marks on yours, that is just the issue I had with pens.

I do have a scraper that I do a light pass with at the end then I sand from 180 to 6000, haven’t had any tool mark problems, but getting the lines to flow nicely and then getting the finish to look really good has been the hard part. Thanks for the tip though

Nice finish and I’m the opposite … I find bowls more challenging :-)
