Well I hope you all had a good weekend I did I feel. The first pen is a Stabilized Buckeye Burl on a Sedona that I got as a test piece from a friend on another site (penturners.org). This new material turns with more dust than ribbons but there is no obnoxious smell to it and it is eco friendly.
The second is a Teak Slimline in a Gold TI, the special part of this piece is this came from the deck of the USS Wisconsin BB-64 the new owner of this pen was given this wood and he gave it to me in exchange for a pen of his choosing. He chose a Slimline so I made one from the best finish available. While turning this wood my wife came out and said it smelled like an old dock area, she is from Hyannis so she would know.
The third is a Chrome Diplomat with a bookmatched canarywood crosscut which actually came from the Canarywood Bandsaw Box Project, I don’t believe in wasting anything.
The fourth is the last piece of my home cast shredded US Currency in a keychain. All in all I am quite happy with this and hope you all enjoy looking at them.
