Ended up having to make a lot of pens in a short time. For some reason I cannot show the pictures of them all, tried a few times….. Used different pieces of Colorwood to make these pens. Rutland wood out of Vermont burnt down to the ground last December and it sounds like it won’t be built back up. So these woods are presious, there are others making this laminated wood but not easy to get yet. Anyway, started a new job and these are some of the pens that I made to hand out to the workers that helped me through the process. I know some people get upset when people list pens, and I haven’t make any for quite a while, but these were still lots of fun making. Thanks for looking.

Very nice Mike!! Now I don’t feel so bad. I just got a new router and have been going crazy making slim line pens for Christmas gifts also. I like your designs.

-- Ouch!! That's going to leave a mark.
