finally i got the time to make some pens this Sunday.
its been a while since i did some as i did not have the parts and those are pricey to get here.
some are local woods and the black one is ebony, i got a little piece of that wood from some woodworker that i met at a craft show, he told me that he liked our stuff and would like to see some pieces in that wood.

thanks for reading!

Nice bunch of pens, Nayo! That ebony is classic, but I prefer to see the grain in the wood pens. I really like the contrasting stripe in the third pen. Glad you got to turn some! I got to go to a lathe tool sharpening class. Got most of my tools sharp again! Thanks for sharing.

Candy, that’s my Achilles heel’s, for the life of me, i can not sharpen my chisels, sadly nobody teach that here, even tough i fallow the youtube videos, still need to “how to do that” or maybe the chisels that i have are not the best ones, but more likely its me :)
thanks for your comments

I know how frustrating is is to try and learn any new skill without an experienced teacher with you for guidance and correction. All the practice in the world doesn’t help if your technique is off, even just a little. What equipment do you have, Nayo? What size and grit grinding wheel? Any jigs?
I do not profess to be an expert, far from it, but I’d be glad to share anything I learned in class if it will help.

-- God bless, Candy
