Completed this pen (and a number of others…) today. Figured with the snow holding us at the house, it’d be a good chance to do some turning. Cold as it was out there…I still turned 5 pens; with many breaks in between. This kit is a WC Platnium Navigator with a white jasper tru-stone blank.
This is my first tru-stone and was surprised at how easily I turned it. I sharpened my spindle gouge three times just to make sure I didn’t mess it up. The blank and the kit were Christmas presents from my wife.
I apologize for the pictures. Taken on an Apple Iphone 3G. Thanks for looking though.
