You are right this is a pretty pen. Is it an acrylic?

Thanks Gary. I realize you don’t care for pens much so that matters. It is acrylic Scott… Picked this style up in volume at woodcraft when I was purchasing for the auction I told you about. I have many more to turn… :) After turnig just a bunch of these for free, I am just now getting back to thinking that turning pens aint so bad…

Nice looking pens. Does the acrylic turn like wood?

similar..doesn’t smell like wood and tends to “string”. It is easy to cut and finishes up like…well, like polished plastic. Some of the patterns can be very striking.

That is pretty! I know a lady who collects “cows” would love that pen. Looks like a Holstein. I think your background is two busy and mingle to much with your pens. You might want to try a more solid background.

Bigguy, these really came out nice. Dittos on the background of the picture. They’d really stand out on a plain background.

When I was working I had a fetish for pens. Lucky for me I didn’t have a lot of money and most pens only cost a few bucks. I do recall while on vacation a vendor was selling hundreds of pens he turned. At the time I was not aware that you could make your own pens by turning them yourself. If I knew that I woud have made my own. I like the size and the colors. It a keeper. Thanks for sharing you talents.

Thanks for the tip on the background… I’ll give it a go.
