Well I finally got a chance to try our some of the material that made it back to me from the Pen Turners' Swap!
It was hard to choose but I dug into one of my favorite woods (Walnut) and some Smokewood Bush shared with us by Karson.
I made the Walnut into a Copper Euro style pen. It came out mighty fine…
However, the Smokewood Bush was an amazing wood to work with. The pictures don’t do the colors in this wood justice. The yellow portion ranges from light mustard yellow to a yellow-brown, really unique stuff! It turned easily and I finished with CA/BLO topped with Shellawax.
Thanks guys for sharing some great woods!
