    Green maple burr

    Hi pen people

    I posted a similar pen to this in purple a little while back. This is the green version which, instead of acrylic, has ebonite threads and section. It also has an ebonite finial on the barrel. This allows me to make a compete pen from a single wooden blank (they are quite pricey).

    This pen also has a fully lined cap, which I have started doing on all my wooden pens. The final picture shows the ebonite cap insert which is glued inside the wood next to it. It has a stepped profile as I add a taper to the cap when shaping, so this ensures the wall thickness isnít compromised. It does add a bit of extra work, and a certain amount of precision is needed, especially when boring the insides of the wood so each step is exactly aligned with the corresponding step on the insert.

    The threads are 13mm triple lead and the nib is a Jowo no6.

    Cheers
    Ash

    That's another lovely piece of maple, well framed and showcased, I also like the match with the ebonite too. You can see both a lot of thought and work has gone into this one

    Stunning work. On a technical note, are you turning these pens just using a metal lathe or combination of both wood and metal lathes.
