Default Segmented, swirls, celtic knots, new from Oregon, USA

Hello to all the Pen Inthusiasts; My (Denver395) was a nickname bestowed by my Uncle when I could barely spit! My name is Denvy and love to turn. At first my thoughts turned to bowls, then two segmented chess sets, different projects, then pens. My favorite is creating the slimline to resemble the favored European Style. I make my own center bands. My newest project is fountain pens. I bought the best kits available and just discovered I need two special drills. I have a great selection but the hole should be drilled properly so to wait for the correct drills shall be my next move. A Locust tree came down today, rounded out some bowl blanks and wound up with many pen blanks. Seems the center of a locust tree is darker wood than the last inch or two. Makes a drastic contrasting pen blank. Hope to learn lots here and help when I can...Denvy
