This is the fourth of four pens I made this weekend for some retireing co-workers. This is made from Afzelia Burl using a Craft Supplies 10K gold rollerball kit.

I am trying to catch up on all of the wonderful project postings and it is a real pleasure to see you pen projetcs! I agree with Dick that you have some very fortunate co-workers! Not only to work with you but to receive one of your wonderful pens. You are way too talented! I checked out the Craft Supplies website. Seems I will need to look into pen turning!

Thanks David. I would recommend pen turning. It is a great way to feel the accomplishment of completing a project without having to spend a lot of time on it. Working long hours in the high tech industry, it is a great way to get rid of a little stress and to have something to show for it at the end of the day.

I could use some after work stress relief myself!

I realized that the last work I saw of yours was the coping sled. I was just admiring your writing instruments. Those are absolutely gorgeous, instant classics.
