This is a Handmade Texas Flag Acrylic and Madagascar Rosewood wood pen made on my lathe. The timber and acrylic was glued up before hand and then milled to its final dimension. It was turned in two separate pieces 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. Acrylic portion of the pen was wet sanded to 12k grit. The finish used was Shellax and then buffed off with a clean cloth for a ultra fine texture and beautiful polish.
