I got my new lathe a couple of weeks ago (Grizzly 10” Benchtop) and have been playing around with it. These are a couple of Razor’s and Pen’s that I have turned so far. The Razors are Zebrawood with a CA/Linseed Oil finish and the Pens are Cherry with a CA/Linseed Oil finish. The darker Cherry is some reclaimed flooring that I got from my father in-law and really has some wonderful figure in it. Loads of fun making these, to the point that some of my other tools are gathering dust….

Pretty nice. I’m restoring an old lathe can’t wait to try it out.

My Christmas present of a Delta 46-460 has been kind of addictive…
Those razors are a cool idea.
And they look awesome.

Nice job! My lathe has been gathering dust but I think it’s time to get back to it, especially when I see the fun others are having.
