Default My first pens

Hi there! I just got a lathe for christmas, so Iím very green as far as turning goes. These are my first pens Iíve made. Theyíre from a sampler kit from penn state. All the wood is cocobolo, except for the white pen thatís an oak branch from the front yard. I definitely think it wasnít quite dry enough to use, as the knots in it have separated slightly since I turned it. It had been drying for some months, and I should have been more patient with it, but I was so excited!
Let me know what all you experienced guys think, and let me know what I could do to improve.
