I was spending some time making some pens. I started out showing a fellow Mason Dixon member how to make pens. He must have thought I was too expensive so he wanted to make his own.
In reality his children wanted some for their friends so he thought he’d branch out in his wood making repertoire to include pens.
So after I got my lathe all set up again. I started to go through some of the wood that I’d gotten from some fellow LumberJocks.
From Harold I received some wood from Hawaii. The pens that I made from his wood are:
The top one being Milo and the bottom one being Mango. This wood was gotten in a trade with Harold for some local hardwoods from my area.
From Gerry I got some Texas Ebony and some Mesquite.
The wood you see in the background is some Texas Ebony pieces. The mesquite and ebony were purchased.
From Jeff Jeff the woodwhacker
I got some YellowHeart and some Figured mahogany. This wood was gotten in a trade of pen blanks between the two of us.
And from a person on the web that I ran across. some Desert Ironwood.
The wood that you see in the background is Desert Iron wood pieces. This wood was traded for some Macacubbba and Chechen from Central America.
From my own supplies I made a pen from Popular that had white, green and black coloration and some curly Oak.
I had three pieces with the same coloration.
The wood under the first picture in the posting is Big Leaf Maple Burl from Oregon.
