    First wood turned since the arm incident of '07

    I turned this for a pen swap on a different site. First wood I turned since I lost the battle with gravity. Dyed maple burl, african blackwood on a streamline kit. The center is a socket and tennon to hide the brass tube.

    Nice-looking pen. I'll bet it feels good to get back into the spin of things.

    Your 'gravity' comment reminded me of a t-shirt I got after I had a 3-story fall a few years ago...

    Yep, gravity sucks!

    Nice looking pen Dale, looks like you remember how

    First wood turned since the arm incident of '07/gravity

    Very classy looking pen Dale. Nice job indeed. I haven't tried any pens, yet.
