Well today was another day of pen making. I started with a cross cut Zebrawood, put the top section lost a chunk on the lathe….so the pic shows the bottom section, I really like how that looks. I did play with the top section just to learn some tricks. The second on is made of Purpleheart, and it is a slimline pen kit.
On a side note, went over to my FIL’s, he makes hard wood wooden toys, and dug around in his scrap pile. Using a 12” band saw cut myself over 100 wooden pen blanks….SCORE!!!!!!! A wide variety, maple, purpleheart, mahogany, ash, yellowheart, rosewood, white oak, cherry, walnut, teak, and several other types. Will keep me busy for awhile, guess I need to buy some more kits.
