I just started turning and pen making is easy and lots of fun, Plus is quick enough that if I don’t have a lot of time I can still complete a project. I can see a lot of wood turning in my near futur..

I used wood that a friend gave me from his fire wood pile, the cream color one is Cascara and the reddish brown is Cherry.

I’ll leave a link to a video of the I made of the process but it’s not a how to video…

Well done and as Jeff said the Cascara is beautiful. Having just started, may I suggest a species of wood that blows the socks of friends and provides that ultimate personal touch…, its called,

Very nice. Welcome to the addiction… er hobby that is turning. :)

As LittleBlackDuck mentioned BOOMBY is a great type of wood turn, unlike flat work it is really easy to grab any old piece of wood and turn it. Look forward to seeing other projects.

That would be nice but unfortunately I do not have access to BOOMBY, (very small back yard) but I do have lots of leftover from previous projects. Thanks for the feed back guys…

Hi Gb, ”ee” Leftovers are good to sell and give out to those relative you really don’t like, but friends may have BOOMBYs of their own and after all it’s them that will brag about their BOOMBY.
I encourage friends (good friends) to drop around their larger rose clippings or a sample of their yearly prunnings. It’s amazing how many free drinks this produces as compared to just normal give aways.

If all that fails go for a LOSR, Log On Side of Road…

In any case my main message is enjoy.
