Default Hello From Oregon!

I just got into pen making. Finished my first one tonight! I'm definitely hooked now.



Glad to be here and get to learn from all of you!

Welcome Eric, from Sydney Australia.
Nice Pen, Excellent Finish,
Though you could have taken the Diameters Down to The Bushings in all Area's, this is a common occurrence with New Turners, who have yet gotten the Confidence to take the Blank Down, and end up with Ridges at the Transition of Blank to Hardware.
Look forward to your next Post.
Please keep this Pen, and Use it as a Gauge to your Progress over the Next Months and Years
Congratulations,
Brian.

Thanks everyone!
And thank you, Brian. I knew they weren't quite as low as I wanted, but my mandrel was a little bent so it was whipping a bit. Now that I'm done with this one I'm going to try to straighten it out...
I'm definitely keeping this one, though! Should be fun to compare it to later pens.
Thanks again!
