My sweet bride finally asked me to show her how to turn a pen, So she made me this amboyna burl slimline. It turned out really nice. I will not be taking this to work for fear of losing it. Thanks for looking

She did good. It looks great, certainly do not want to lose it. Hope we see more more from her but you’ll have to share the workshop then. :)
My wife is going to try tomorrow at a turn for the troops event. I’ll look forward to posting.

Nice looking pen. It looks like you might have lost your lathe to your wife.

Great Pen.
Now you will need an extra lathe. :)

Oh No! Now you’ll be standing at the back of the line. Does she play fair?
