My grandpas birthday is Thursday so I made him a nice rollerball screw cap pen. The base of the pen is the Tycoon pen Kit from Penn State Industries Woodturners supply. http://www.pennstateind.com/
It is 24 karat gold plated and features sleek parts that make for a splendid pen. I completed the pen with a Dyed Stabilized Buckeye Burl and finished it with seal coats of CA Glue and a high gloss wax finish.
Another Pen I made was a Majestic Rollerball pen also available from Penn State Industries. It is a very large pen and with the cap on feels very heavy but when the cap is removed it is perfectly balanced. This pen was purchased in the Rhodium and Black Titanium Nitride finish. A sleek and sharp looking pen perfect for anyone with large hands or that likes a large well balanced pen. It also for its size isn't very heavy which makes it a pleasure to write with. This pen was completed with a very nice Redwood Lace Burl Blank which makes very nice large pens and the wood couldn't have worked any better.
