    My Best Pen

    This has to be my best pen to date.

    We see a lot where the comments are "The Photo does not do it justice" and I can safely say this is one of those moments

    I absolutely adore this pen even though the finish is only at 90% where it should be (in my opinion, although it may be at 100 % for this wood),

    The black kit works so well with the Beech and it has no radials (My first pen that does not have them)

    The Beech was included in the bundle I purchased from Mark @flexi

    The box was purchased from Eamonn @silver, I say purchased but it is part of a larger order and trying to get him to take the agreed amount is a nightmare, every time I offer him the money he goes into hiding I will say though he is an absolute top bloke and it's great chatting with him


    Rocket Bullet pen, black with copper tip

    Beech

    Finish:- Sanding Sealer, Melamine, Carnauba Wax Stick

    Well it had to happen sooner or later mate....
    Very well done, that spalted Beech is cut on an angle, so it can be a bit harder to turn, but you have done a lovely job
    Yes @silver he can be hard to accept payment.... Stunning boxes though

    Excellent job there Gary, your pen even improves the look of the box too.

    Now now gents, you will be getting me a bad reputation

    One thing I have problems with is the customer actually giving me the right information to enable me to price accordingly

    I always like to look after and treat forum members well as we have all grown together, but I would sooner be I now. Like this than a rip off merchant

    You are certainly the opposite to a rip off merchant Eamonn... And yes getting what the customer actually need out of them is often a lot harder than the turning
