Here’s another pen that I turned. I think it turned out pretty nice. Any tips on getting better results and better lighting for my pictures?

The pen kit is a Woodcraft Navigator Pen.
The Blank is from Rockler.
Polished up to 12000 grit with Rockler’s micro-mesh pads. I actually got the 3×4 pads and cut them up.

After looking at the pictures, I guess I could have wiped off my fingerprints first! Ah, oh well. You get the idea. Now I just need to get my own lathe…

Super nice pen. Photograph in sunlight for best result. Especially not florescent lighting. Don’t use any kind of reflective background. BZ
