Default Some of my first slims

I am new to turning. My uncle gave me his old lathe for Christmas, and I didn't start playing with it until about a month ago. Here are a few of my first slim lines. I have investigated the "modified" version, but my 7mm bit is a little too short, so will be getting a longer bit soon. Finish is CA glue on all 3. I got the inspiration for the plywood pen from an IAP thread. My uncle taught me the Celtic knot (maple/walnut). Finally the figured pecan that I got off the of the scrap pile, this one is my favorite -- I cut a 1" blank and had no clue the figure would be so beautiful.

Excellent Pens, Sam.
Great Blanks, Gorgeous Celtic Knot.
Nicely Turned and Finished.
Turn that special piece of Timber you have been keeping.
Enjoy it for its true beauty.
Why leave it for others to enjoy without you?
