    Rosewood Comfort Pen with wire inlay

    Hey guys, here is a ballpoint pen I made for my brother a few days ago. It was made using rosewood, walnut, and I made a wire inlay around the center ring to make it the highlight of a pen. Kit parts are in gun metal, and the pen was finished with CA glue. What do you think?

    My first pens

    Turned my first two pens today using slimline kits from Craft Supplies. The first (right) I think is padauk— went ok, but didn’t quite finish it well with CA. The second went better in walnut. I was a bit shy around the bush is, not wanting to damage them— as a result the barrels are a bit wide...

    Walnut, cherry, aluminuim

    Here is a vintage classic from Smitty's! It was a $2 kit on closeout and I have been learning for maybe three months less than 20 pens so far. I thought this one turned out nice ! Also I posted one picture with my ipad and it will only do 1 picture period! Any ideals, I know others have the same...

    Parquet Collaboration

    Beech and walnut glue up by my father (he's a segment turner, but not a pen turner). The blank was a Christmas gift to me from him, the pen will be a father's day gift back to him. Comments / critiques welcome. Sorry about the photo -- black velvet is the wrong background to collect all...

    My fist large pen

    After a month of turning I finally decided to pull out the tycoon I ordered, this is the result. I was surprised that the walnut looks to have a burl figure in it. Please be critical, I turned my first pen on the 7th of this month, so i know there is a lot more I need to learn.:smile: Thanks

    Two new "Martin Cigars"

    I made these today. They are both out of walnut. Big thanks to Peter for the La Gloria band. The CAO band was from last night. I am going to have to make quite a few more because my local cigar shop wants some. I converted the cigar box to a cigar pen box for presentation of the pens...

    2 "Martin" Cigars (new pic added)

    I was so impressed with his cigar pens I had to try it. Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery! I'm a cigar lover so this was right up my alley. The first one I made was out of Red Mallee and buckeye burl. The second one is made out of Claro Walnut and buckeye burl. I used churchill...
