First Pens

My first pens, all finished with linseed and ca. Some of the wood I got from an assorted exotic cut offs box, so I don't know what the wood is on a few. I did try a black palm blank but that was disastrous. From left to right:
1. unknown exotic
2. unknown exotic
3. bloodwood
4. unknown exotic
5. afzelia burl
6. curly maple
7. tulipwood
8. zebrawood

#1 looks like could be cocobolo or maybe kingwood. #2 could be canarywood, but a little too much glare to tell for sure. #4 looks like bocote. Very nice job on your first ones. After reading all the posts here I must be the only penmaker not using CA as a finish...just can't stand the smell/stinging eyes from the fumes. Plus like the feel of wood with a good waxed finished...doesn't feel plastic to me.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

Nice job on them. Nice variety of woods you used. Have you tried any of the other pen kits that are available?
