The Hub City Turners, a local woodturning club I belong to, will have a display of turnings at a local mall. The theme is Green. I struggled for a while trying to come up with something so I decided to make a pen from Staghorn Sumac. It is a small tree that has green wood to varying degrees. Mal (magpens) came through for me with a few blanks when I requested them a while back. The kit is a Canadiana kit that I've had for ages from William Wood-Write. Finish is Ca, buffed on a Beall buffing set in the lathe. The pictures taken in the light tent don't do the high shine justice. Oh well. Hope you like.

Great pen, mate...!

Is not easy to find a natural tree that produces green wood not in the green/wet but in green the colour. If my memory doesn't fail me I only have one wood species that have some shades of green colour and that is the #76 Australian SA Ironwood (special) but not all trees have that, I was lucky that the last tree I salvaged had these greens and hard as a rock.

Cheers
George
