Just a couple more that I just finished at 1am this morning.

First one is a Orange and Black Pearlescant Acrylic w/ Chrome Hardware.
Second is a pen and pencil set from Olive Wood.

Any comment good or bad will be greatly appreciated. These are the 4th, 5th, and 6th pens I have ever turned.

The help I have received from everyone here has helped me greatly allready and I cannot put into words the gratitude I have for every bit of advice I have received so far.

They look great. Very nice..

Maybe think about painting the tubes when using Acrylics. Sometimes the brass color showing through, works. Sometimes black or white would do the trick. Just my $.02 worth.. :biggrin:

1+ for painting the tubes or inside of the blanks after drilling.

The olive wood is really nice. I might think about a smoother transition at the centerband of the clicker next time.

You're doing a great job for having turned so few pens.

+1 on painting inside of blank on 1st pen. You may try a white or even a silver or something a little brighter. Would give the blank a different look.
