I ordered these blanks from Treebones here on LJ’s. They turned great and look great too. I am really enjoying turning pens!

I like it, I will have to start turning, I tried a large lathe a while back was lots of fun.
Fine looking pen.

Those are the natural defects in the burl itself.

Very cool. These seem real dark. What do you use for the finish?

The Walnut oil must darken it down some more? I use Watco Danish Oil Natural and that darkens a lot by itself. Sometimes I like the satin poly finish because it keeps some of the liter red colors of the Claro Walnut.
