I see the pen has gotten another turner hooked. Beware, you will become addicted!! I am, and I have turned a few pens. They are all on here. I also did some dying with food coloring that worked pretty well. Take a look at my projects and check out the pens. I just finished up a handfull of pens and put them on here tonight. Just remember, I warned you. You will spend alot of money and time on them. The wife always has to pull me from the lathe for dinner and a shower..lol. Nice work and have fun!!

Another great turning, Jack. I really like your colors (as well as your ‘natural’ technique). In my opinion, the tiny lines make all the difference. Again, great job.

Best,

Serge
