Here are a few different pens that I made from some bowl drop-offs. When I am cutting up a blank I always keep the drop-offs and trim them down for other smaller projects. I am testing different techniques and finishes along the way. The first pic (the purple pen) was a dyed finish. I was not sure how this would look on a pen but I am very pleased with it (so are my 2 daughters who both want it). I have a few others that I have turned that I am testing different colors including a two tone color set that I am very pleased with. This is very good news for me since I have 100 plus 3/4×3/4×6” blanks that are plane maple and do not make for good looking pens (wood is very plain but has some grain to it). I am looking to try different dying color combinations on them.
Thanks for looking
