This is a Handmade Madagascar Redwood pen made on my lathe. Madagascar Redwood is on a limited supply contributing to its rarity. It was turned in one piece and the interior brass tube was secured with CA thick adhesive for a permanent hold. Finishing, after desired shape was achieved, consisted of sanding from 220grit - 12000 grit sand paper and sanding pads. The finish used was 5 coats of Shellawax abrasive polish and then buffed off with a clean cloth for a ultra fine texture and beautiful polish.
