Got into a pen making mood and didn’t stop for a few hours. the first 2 are leftover pieces from a bandsaw box that I made a couple of weeks ago. Next is osage orange, cocobolo,koa,cocobolo and osage orange. Enjoyed the segmented ones but the were difficult with different textures of wood being turned..some cut easily and some not so. Thanks for looking.

Ed, I see that you have suffered from pen turning recently! The pens look great! I like the segmented pens in this batch, they are my favorite.

Very cool use of the scraps from the bandsaw box.
