    Amateurs poke at an Electra

    I've been turning pens for about 2 months now (I'm 18 years old). Mostly slimlines, but in the last two weeks I have experimented with a european and a electra. I'm new to the forum and this will be my first post with one of my first pens that isn't a slim. Criticism is welcome! P.S. sorry...

    Experimenting with One Piece Slimline

    Saw this concept on the Pen Turners Facebook page and tried a couple. First time posting my work, so be kind! The first attempt was with bocote and the black chrome kit. The second was gluing curly maple and padauk cut on a 15 degree angle, topped off with the gun metal kit. Pretty fun!

    Spiraling segments

    One of my first complex segment successes. This is purple heart and teak in a slimline style. LOML grabbed this one right away. Right after this one, I moved on to better kits. Have only made a handful of slimlines since.
