I got in the mood to make a few pens.
I had (Wanted) to make 4 pens for people who helped in out 20” snow that happened a week or so ago.
One neighbor used his Bobcat to clear out the road in our subdivision,
Another neighbor used his bobcat to clear out my driveway.
A third neighbor used his pickup to pull me out of a stuck condition at the end of the subdivision, before all the snow was removed.
So I made them some pens.
A Big Leaf Maple burl pen, a Pink Ivory pen, A Mesquite Pen and a Texas Ebony pen. They were all given away before I took any pictures.
You just have to take my word on that.
While I was making them I found a couple of pieces of Snakewood that I had gotten as part of some scrap that I bought. (Snakewood scrap) I planed to use it as inlays etc. Anyway some of the pieces were big enough to be used for pens. The figure might not have been intense enough for the originator to keep and sell as pen blanks.
I made two pens and I’ll just keep them on my desk for a while.
They will probably disappear over time.
