Another Parting Gift

The long time photographer at my park has decided to retire and move away. I thought it once again appropriate that he get to take a little bit of the place with him. This pen was made from wood at the park, and I turned it larger with a center band from a refrigerator pen kit. The clip is an open style from woodturner’s catalog. The finish is my standard friction polish ; I have been very happy as of late with some of the finishes I have been getting with the friction polish due to my use on another project I have been doing.

Thanks for looking.

Really nice job!! I have a question…Yes, I’m strange… this is how my brain works….I saw the title of your post and couldn’t help but ask, if you gave away your lathe parting tool, would it also be a “parting gift”?...hahaha, I crack myself up sometimes…my wife just calls me a dork.
