Default A couple of pens finished up last week

. These are 2 pens that were recently completed. The golden tiger is my West End model and the deep sea ebonite is my Shockoe Bottom model.

I'm glad you posted these here because the Facebook pictures are so hard to see. Very nice. You sure make a lot of pens! Seems like every day you are posting new ones. All of them are beautiful.

I have a metal lathe that I turn down various stock to make the bands needed. I will make bands of the metal and the same material and sleeve it onto the pieces needed.

Beautiful pens! I especially love the colors on the top one.

AND Thanks for using enough light along with a background that did not drown out the color or pens themselves. Honestly, too many pen picts are posted with too little light, too much light and with bright red or dark black background that seems to swallow up the pens, making it hard to see the pens.

One does not have to have elaborate lights or backgrounds to showcase pens, but one does need to keep the distractions OUT.

THANKS for making the pen color viewing easy on the eyes!
