More pens of course, Have to put that new lathe to good use. All of these are made with new kits that I am working with thanks to sales during the holidays. Each is also made with some blanks that I purchased for something different to work with.
Pics 1, 2- Jim Beam Blank made with Roller Ball Anaheim kit from Craft Supplies. I was mistaken in my last post as the package I got came with Roller Balls and Ballpoints. This is actually my first Roller Ball. OOPS.. need to read packaging better. The Jim Beam blanks came from Woodcraft and were very easy to work with.
Pics 3, 4- A chrome Kit I picked up and in large quantities. This is the first turning from it. The blank is from the Atlantic City Boardwalk and came from PSI. Since I grew up going to AC fairly regularly I thought this wold be a fun blank. It was fairly easy to turn and finished pretty well considering it is just pressure treated wood.
Pics 5, 6- Another Anaheim Ballpoint, this one done with a burl that I purchased a while back on clearance somewhere. Perhaps Rockler. My first experience with this type of wood and I have to say I like the outcome. I have a couple more that I am looking forward to working with.
Well as usual thanks for looking. Any comments or critiques are welcome.
