I am going to post a few from earlier from this year. These are some of the higher end kits and also proof that I have and can turn wood.
Pen #1 is a Nouvo Sceptre Kit. I like these kits from Penn State...they are expensive but nice
Pen #2 is a Burl on a simple cigar frame
Pen #3 Walnut Sap on a Churchill Frame
Pen #4 Is a Jr Gent. This is an older photo from 6 years ago or so...the watch was a gift I got from a Wealthy friend. I always sent him something I made for his birthday.....I sent him this pen for his collection with this photo to thank him again fro the watch.
Pen #5 Is a pin stripe blank that I had made with some help. It is pic guard mounted on a 3d printed holder then the blue material poured around it. This is about my fifth attempt at it. I had 4 failures prior. I had the 3d frame made by a friend then I had the pour from another friend. It required a pressure pot to set up in and I do not have one.
Pen #6 is a figured Maple on a Jr Gent frame. As I have mentioned before I am never going to do CA finishes again...I know a lot of you like CA, but I believe it does not age well and is not durable. This blank is my first I used WOP on what I call a spit. It is very similar to a chicken spit in that it spins at about 20 RPM and prevents drips from forming. It has 5 coats, and then buffed on a Beall Buff. It takes 3 or 4 days...so it is not a quick solution but has great depth and very hard.
Thanks for looking...I am going to back off on showing for a while.
