    Just a simple pen

    I wanted to turn a quick pen for use this next week and so I used a piece of Jon Shively's Amboyna Burl that I got in this summers pen blank exchange here on the forum. The pen is a Wall street II click from Woodcraft. I replaced the ink with a "Private Reserve" 9000 refill cartridge.

    Great looking pen Tom. Wood looks great. I like turning the Wallstreet II's. My best seller is the Wallstreet click pens and I cut the blank down to 1.88" so I can get rid of that spacer on top of the pen cartridge.

    Thanks Bernie, I just read about that tonight after I finished this. I might give that a try next time.

    Not sure you can call it a 'Simple' pen if you used amboyna burl. That looks fantastic!

    Ditto here. Great job, Tom. I really need to try the Wall Street kits one of these days.

    Very nicely completed Writing Instrument Tom!
    Excellent fit and finish with a nice choice of kit and plating to complement the Amboyna Burl.
