Here is a “Retro” pen kit from Woodcraft.

I used some spalting Laurel for the wood blanks to turn the pen. I used CA glue and wax for the finish. This was a gift for my oldest son’s first day attending a local community college.

Thank you for looking!

Here is a video link to making this exact pen, if you should be so inclined to watch.

That is a good looking pen! All the colors work great together. Great pics too. I am sure there will be many memories created thru that pen.
That’s really great he’s ready to tackle the world! What a great day for all I am sure.
I will check out your vid at break tomorrow.
I am glad you shared this with us!
