Helped my father-in-law make his first pen. He traveled all the way from Minnesota to learn how to make a pen from an IAP master. Instead he got a crash course from me :biggrin:. It is a modified slimline in Ziricote with a friction polish finish.
Excellent Modified Slimline Sam,
Your Father in Law had a Great Tutor, you can Tell by the Results.
The only down side to this Exercise, is that you might have created a Monster, you know how Addictive Pen Making is, he might now find any excuse to come over to your place to Play.
Congratulation to you Both,
"No one is ever good enough for my little girl."
Had to make one more pen with my father-in-law before he heads back to the frozen tundra. This one was a collaborative effort, he really wanted to turn something with aluminum in it. It's an Ellipse, Oxhorn (bulletwood) center and Ziricote ends with aluminum bands. If this doesn't get him hooked on penturning, I don't know what will :biggrin:
