Seems like the pen biz is spinning out of control…... (I never had control of it to start with). I know, it’s more and more pens, writing instruments, etc., but, the past few months have been a blur for me. October is totally missing in my world, and November, well, I guess it’s gone too. Holy Crap!!!! I never thought time could just be here and gone in a quick second…......Wasn’t it March 1st last week??? I did want ya’ll to know, it’s too cold to be in the hammock, so, I haven’t been slackin off… LOL Anyhoo, I do have a few things on the bench beside all these pens I’ve been spinning. I’ll be showing you that soon…..........well, when I get em done…. I appreciate you checkin in, and of course, any comments, good/bad/ugly will be absorbed. A lot of new kits from PennSt. The last couple pics are of a very special fountain pen that I spun for a very prominent man of Louisville. I think it came out super. I did finish the fountain pen with wet sanding with micro-mesh up to 12000, then polished with Hut Ultra Gloss.

Plus, I did these for my sister up north. I also meant to say hey to all, because I haven’t even had time to check in round here. I’m playin catch-up with my way too many emails. Hope everyone had a nice holiday, Thanksgiving.

Very nice Roger.
I don’t have the patience to do pens…but I appreciate them.

Those pens are beyond words Roger. Excellent craftsmanship. The ones with the anchor on it really grabs my attention. The acrylic one is also a winner.

So what’s the material used with the fountain pen? The striations look very interesting

Would have got a better shine on that “important” pen IF you had used Brasso. Ha ha! Just ribbin’ ya some Roger.

Really, all of the pens look great! I really like the last one too. I have turning more pens lately. Not like you have but more for me. I have a couple that I will post soon. Take care and Merry Christmas. Hope your turkey day was filling.

Making pens must be your passion Roger .
They are better and better looking and the selection is awesome .
Must have hit the jackpot selling the one in last pic sure looks expensive .
I am still making boxes (VALETS) for Christmas got four on the go .

Mind if I ask what prices you have been getting for these?
I imagine the amounts vary.
