Been slowly learning how to do this in stages--basic turning, assembly, friction polish, and finally CA finish. Here's the first pen I'm willing to show off, very slyly placed to obscure flaws. Obviously from the dust, my photography skills need to improve as well ...

Hmmm - VERY nicely done. Walnut, right? One of my personal favorites, but that has nothing to do with my being impressed. The turning looks great - the places where the different materials meet look nicely aligned. The CA finish - well, I'm thinking you could give classes (maybe that's too much 'cause it's sure to ignite a war here :p). I like the shape, too. Bulbous pens don't get me. This one does.
One "attaboy" for goldendj.

Thanks! Yes, it's walnut--got it from Amazon when I was first stocking up to start getting the dust off the lathe. Finish is tung oil followed by CA.
