These pens were by William Robertson as I taught him how to turn pens… This was his first time in pen turning and is using these as Christmas gifts… It was a joint effort with Will doing most of the work as I gave him direction…

1. BEAUTIFUL piece from an Apple tree from my neighbor’s yard… Yes he knows… I wish you could see it better… (Sent some in the swap)
2. Cherry cut on the diagonal.. It was a UGLY chunk of wood but is making great pens… (Not in Swap)
3. Dogwood… Some say the grain is ot impressive but was wanted because it is a favorite tree… (From the Swap)

It is fun to teach others to do this!!! I feel as if it is my work but with more feeeling since I love helping others learn…

More to come…

These are really nice pens. You did an excellent job of teaching with the way these “turned” out. Of course my personal favorite would have to be the cherry pen.

These will make nice gifts.
