I posted a couple o these, but, this is everything that I did for my sister. Acrylic do-dads, and pens, and 2 sets of hors d’œuvre utensils. Wenge and Bloodwood with a Danish Oil finish for the utensils. I think I’m done with acrylics. They’re ok, but, I like wood more better. Thnx for lookin. Appreciate any input, good, bad, or ugly

You do nice work. You’re better off to stick with wood :-)

Good looking array. Yeah… wood trumps acrylic every time. Still though, the acrylic has a cool look. Did you mix and pigment your own or use ‘blanks’?

Good looking collection, Roger. I am sure your sister loves you very much and appreciates your talents.

I agree with your acrylics statement – some acrylics look good but there is no real challenge to turning them and the intrinsic feeling that wood imparts to your senses is missing when dealing with something man-made. As the saying goes – “I’d rather be turning than (insert whatever here)”.
