    Here are a few of the pens I turned this year for christmas gifts for one of the guys I work with. These are from scraps left over from the hardwood we used on the different planes this year. From left to right --- mahogany, birds eye maple, walnut, soft maple with mahogany strip, and 2 from zebra wood.

    Refresh my memory here, Kelly? What is it you do with those woods on planes?

    We build all the cabinets to complete the interiors for large business luxury jets, like the boeing business jet, embreier regional jet, gulfsteam g5 or similiar sizes.

    You sure take the scraps and make something really nice from them. The folks that received them should be very happy.

    Very nice, Kelly. I like the grain and appearance of real wood.

    The picture didnt do the birds eye maple justice. Once I finished them with boiled linseed oil and then super glue and final polish, it had a 3d look to it with the birds eye.
