I thought I should actually turn a pen since I agreed to be a part of LJ's pen swap. You guys seemed to have a lot of fun with the last swap. I sanded through 600 grit and then polished with BMW New Auto Glaze. European satin gold kit.

LOL! Just came in to post the couple of pens that I just did and seen this. Wow! I have made pens from Tigerwood before but they never looked like this! Wow! again.

This should be a piece of cake for an experienced turner like yourself. :) This is a nice pen and congratulations on adding a new phase of turning. (as if you really needed any more incentive to spend time at the lathe).

Well done and keep on having fun.

Joe, that’s a beautiful pen. I love the wood & grain!

Oh and that’s one of the best backgrounds that I’ve seen for a picture too!
