    Veneered Pen

    Actually got the finish correct with this pen I followed @Phil Dart Melamine tutorial and it worked out OK.

    Downside with this pen is that white glue is showing between the layers, this appeared whilst turning and I do not know how to get rid/hide it.

    Got the blank from Mark @flexi Cheers mate

    I think the stripes look alright on the bullet rocket kit.

    Box purchased from Eamonn @silver Cheers mate

    Red and Black Veneer

    Rocket Bullet Pen

    Finish:- Sanding Sealer, Melamine, Carnauba Stick

    Your on a roll mate...
    Another lovely pen...
    I presume the white lines are on the grey veneers, it's just laminate lines, some dyes penetrate deeper than others and some can show glue lines. I keep the blank cool when sanding and apply a 'secret' oil prior to melamine finish, it darkens the wood and its less noticeable....

    Another great pen Gary. Superb job.

    Think mark has hit the nail on the head with the line problems. Could easily be the dyes.

    You are getting good at this pen turning lark, Gary.

    On the 3rd picture down it looks like one of the black strips are missing, or is it just the photograph?
    It looks like the place for the clip.

    Anyway, well done and I like Eamonn's box.

    I can answer that one Alan.... Because its plywood, you see the layers from the side, that pic shows the top of the blank, but as its on a small radius it gets confusing as the sides get cutaway
