Pens for Interns

Our church has two Bible college interns working here for the summer. They’ve spent the summer doing all sorts of things, helping out around the church, ministry related tasks, helping out with our youth group. So I decided that they could use some good pens.

This pen was made from Australian Lace Sheoak. It’s been finished with 20+ layers of a cyanoacrylate adhesive, and then buffed to a glass like finish. This pen gave me a problem while turning it. Can you spot it? The fix is visible in the photo. 🙂

This next pen was made from Mexican Bocote. This is a hard, dense and coarse exotic wood. It’s been finished with around 25 layers of cyanoscrylate adhesive, and buffed to a glass like surface.

Both pens are made using 10K gold hardware, and should hold up quite well.

Tim and Garret, I hope you enjoy your pens and that they give you many great years of service! Just be sure you don’t stir any coffee with these pens!
