Still working on getting shapes the same on double barrel pens. For the life of me I can’t get it the same. Oh well guess I have to keep practicing . #5 and #6 were my first attempts at casting blanks and turning them.... I feel that the casting will be as addictive as the turning lol.

Keep up the good work !!

Shaping seems ok except, perhaps, for the blue one. . But your shaping will improve as you master the lathe tool manipulation skills. . Keep at it !!

Besides ... there are no hard and fast rules about shaping ... it's all good !!

I would offer that the profiles are pretty good. Yes the middle one is not as matched, but for your first ones, pretty darn nice. I'd love to have most of my first 20-30 back so that I could swap them out for nicer ones.
