Only a few months? It seems like decades since you posted a pen. Now here they are. I like the dyed colors. The polished burl looks very nice too. Thanks for posting Mark.

I honestly don't remember seeing your work before. Those are outstanding! The finishes are beautiful on all of those. Love the burl and dyed Box Elder is amazing. Nicely done!

Thank you all for your kind comments, each one is appreciated, I promise to post more work as it does motivate me. :):)

To answer a few questions.

The dyes that I use are Chestnut Rainbow spirit dyes, and the more you apply the deeper the colour becomes, I do not start dying my pen barrels until they are turned down to the finished diameter. Chestnut dyes.

Although I have not posted for a while I have never stopped making pens, love the hobby too much to give it up! :biggrin:

Never been to Ireland, but have heard it is beautiful and the people are very friendly just the same as us Scots.:beer::drink::good:

Mark ... Glad to have you posting your beautiful work again. These are definitely top of the line in craftsmanship and attention to detail. The pictures are detailed and in sharp focus with attention paid to reflections and light placement. Pure and simply stated this is excellent work all the way around.

Keep enjoying the 'hobby!' :biggrin:
