Got to spend some time in the shop today, I love warm weather. I turned these two pens. The cartridge pen is a spectacular looking piece of Cherry Burl and the Cigar pen is Maple Burl.

Bill, I think you are hooked on pens ;-). You sure are getting to be a proficient pen maker, these are really nice.

I have never even tried to make a pen but I do know that yours are BEAUTIFUL!

You have inspired me to look more into this craft!

I tend to get stuck on one thing. Right now my Son is having some luck selling my pens in his Pawn Shop. He sold 4yesterday, so I’m replenishing his stock. I will be trying some bowl and boxes next week.

Cool looking pen. I think your starting to enjoy selling them more than making them. Glad to hear it Bill.
