Jim that is a beautiful pencil holder. I love the combination of woods.
After looking at all these turnings I am going to have to put a lathe in the budget. I never realized what I was missing until I started seeing these posts.
Thanks for the inspiration.

WARNING TO ALL PEOPLE THINKING TO GET A LATHE : woodturning is addictive, you might not be able to get any other type of woodworking project done.
Jim, very nice project. How did you glued the pieces together to get the pattern? Any tricks involved?
