pens, pens, everywhere are pens. .. blocking out the scenery… breaking my mind..

Very nice. after watching Tom’s video I can see how these would be addictive—instant gratification; still lots of creativity, and then the end result!! As seen in your photo—sweet.

Your off to a fine start Jchon. Better watch your wallet—it’s thoroughly addictive.

Wayne – I’ve turned many slim line pens/pencils, tons of cigar pens, a couple european-whatever-they’re-called, and a perfume atomizer (that was pretty cool… I’ll post a pic as soon as I can find one)

Yeah – I wish I had gotten pictures of the 12 or so that were given as gifts this past Christmas :o) I had more fun with those… I laminated some contrasting woods together – they looked pretty good :o)
