This is a Zen kit pen i made for a new client. He had commissioned this for his wife.
The wood is Tulip wood & the kit is a Zen Black Titanium. Decal with several coats of CA to protect.
It is starting to get warm enough during the day so that I can start doing the Super Glue in my garage again!!!
I need to build a light box like several of you have so I can have better pictures.

Thanks for looking and feel free to add any suggestions, questions or comments.

Looking good there! I like the straight lines of the overall pen. Did you notice how fragrant the tulip wood was when turning it? I really like the flowery smell of it.

This is very crispy clean pen. The wood is awesome and so is the decal.

Thanks for still looking at my work and giving your feedback!!!

I do like to turn tulip wood with how it cuts. And the smell of it reminds me sometimes as being kind of spicy like a spice gumdrop. Or even some of that old Clove gum.
