Greetings from Nebraska! This is many new "Firsts" for me.

1) This is my first time posting to the forum.
2) This is the first pen I have made using an "Oil Slick" DiamondCast (TM) blank from McKenzie Penworks.
3) This is the first time I have turned Alumilite. Wow compared with Rhino Plastic and the Inlace Acrylester that I have used before it turns like a dream!
4) This is the first time I have used the "Oil Spill" Cigar Pen Kit from Turner's Warehouse - I think it makes a nice compliment to the DiamondCast blank.

Comments and critiques are welcome and will be taken in the spirit offered - how else can us relative newbies learn.
Also a very special thank you to my YouTube mentor, Bob from RJB Woodturner - if you haven't checked out Bob's YouTube channels I encourage you to do so.

Best Regards,
Dave (egnald)

Now that's a great first post. Not a pregnant slimline. Excellent pairing of kit & blank. I made my first with that material yesterday also.

If this is the first then I can't wait to see what's next! Beautiful combination, turn and finish. Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery....I will try to copy this pen exactly. Thanks for posting.

Great choice of the pen and blank! Just received my Oil Slick blanks today. Will have to look at the Oil Spill kits.
