Nice assortment!

The majority of them are acrylic blanks. The woods starting at about 1 o’clock are: box elder, Brazilian tulip, spalted oak, big leaf maple, brazilian tulip, koa, walnut, zebrawood, and honey locust. They are all Euro style pens.

Nice job on the pens Joe. How is that acrylic on your chisels?.

The acrylics are fine to turn. Like turning anything, sharp tools are a must. I wet sand them to 600 grit and them polish with a BMW new car wax. The acrylics offer a wide range of colors and patterns.

Yeah, really nice stuff! The acrylics are nice to turn… and non-wood types seem to really like them as well, I’ve found!

That koa is sweet…
