I did my first fountain pens based on the Woodcraft Cambridge Hybrid in Sterling Silver and Gold. I've come to the conclusion that this pen has too much bling and probably would look better in acrylic as I think it takes away from the wood.
The wood used on this pen is something I'm coming very fond of - Mango.
The sad thing about this is that the pieces of Mango I've had have laid about for a couple of years because they just looked blah.
The pen is finished in 4 coats of Med CA and two Thick CA and polished out by wet sanding with Tri-M-Ite polishing papers and then Brasso.
This is the piece of leftover Mango before doing the finish.
The second pen is a Woodcraft Cambridge Hybrid Woodcraft Gold and Sterling Silver with Ebony.
My poor method of 'point-n-shoot' picture taking doesn't do justice to the Ebony and you really can't see what is going on in this piece of timber with the underlying browns in the depth of this wood.
