Wow, two posts in a row ;p

This is my latest pen turning, it’s a slim pencil. I absolutely love the size and shape of the slims, this one is the first of a set, it will go along with a slim pen from the same chunk’o’wood.

Hope you enjoy the pixes from my homemade cardboard softbox ;)

If Thomas can do pens then I need to also. I’ve been wanting to for several years . I think it’s time. I agree the slim pens are very nice to write with.

@Ken: treat yourself to a nice mandrel then :)

@ Kova: es madera podrida! Es haya (Fagus sp.) que ha sido comido en parte por champiñones de la madera.

@ Jim: why, thanks mate.

Nice – I have to add spalted beach to the package to get made into pens, I think I have some of that around!

As a architect I have to say it is a lovely pen as a woodworker I have to say lovely pen, so I gues that makes it a really lovely pen…
Nice work there my friend.
Best thoughts,
