I found the Bright Copper Sedona kits on sale a few weeks ago, and wish I’d bought more.

1. The first is Olive Wood. I was a bit dissapointed when the dark figure turned off of the lower barrel, but I still like the way it turned out.

2. Second is Bone Corian. This one was an 80th birthday present for a neighbor, and was very well recieved.

3. The last is in Paduak. I love the way the burnt orange collor sets off the copper kit.

As always, all comments and critiques are welcome. If you see something wrong, let me know. That way I can fix it on the next go ‘round.
Thanks for looking,
Sef

Belinda, Thanks a lot for that. You only showed me a few of your pens, and they were beautiful pieces. I clearly remember thinking that I had quite a ways to go to get to where you were.

Scottsman – I got them from Arizonasilhouette.com.

Darryl – Thanks. I just wish the wood was as easy as the corian – MM and Brasso, and done. The wood I MM through the 4th or 5th pad, then acetone, then blo, then thin ca, then a lot of layers of blo/med. ca, then MM, then OOPS!, then start all over. Lots of fun. :)

The Paduak and copper hardware really compliment one another. Great job. I see what you mean about the Olivewood, though it may take a patina or darken with use over time. Excellent turnings!

Thanks guys. Matt – The paduak is fun and easy to turn, as long as you’re careful at the edges. It really makes a stand out pen, too.
