Commission pens made from the wood of the customers land. The pens are all oak, something I never turn. The bowl is also for the same customer and it is a Maple bowl. Will post bowl photos later. Bowl is about 14 inches across

Really good looking pens Ron, I like the bowl also.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Old Novice I only recently started to make pens to help pay my way in the Galleries. They are at a price point that people can justify. I will photo the bowl and get it up later in the week.
Thanks for the comments

Looking good. Making pens, bowls, etc., from something that was grown close, and/or on someones property, has a special place and is very special to many. Nice stuff

I like all the variety you created out of that oak, Ron. Those pens will mean a lot to the people who knew the tree!
