    No laughing now!!

    First one is a PSI blank I was gifted in the box swap by Michael James...pic doesn't do it justice; I put it on a gun metal Mesa frame...my new carry pen!
    Ok...no laughing at this part. I had an old cherry box made back in '09. Nothing fancy so I gave my burner a try...obviously nothing fancy, but I was taking a bit from Keith Burns...not much...just a little.

    Looks good to me and the only criticism I have is that your photoos would benefit from better lighting.

    Well, it may not be up to Molly Winton standards yet, but you're already better at the pyrography stuff than I am, Jim.

    And the pen looks great, but that's no surprise, coming from you.

    Yep, as others have said, "awesome pen"! Personally I really like the feel of that type of pen in my hand, but in my shirt pocket, to much of the top of the pen sticks out for my tastes. Is there this style available where the clip is above that spacer directly below the clip button?
    The wood burning, looks so darn easy until you sit down to do it. If I still smoked, I would be best off using my burner to light a cig instead of trying to create any positive visual item! No laughing at you or your burning, I think it is identifiable and a very good try. Keep on practicing!!!

    Yep, definitely no laughing matter!
    Both projects look great Jim.
    Well done.

    Even with the bad pics, both look good.
    Pen is fine.
    Burning is better than many can do.
