    Some of my pens

    OK, someone said I needed to post pictures of my pens, so here goes. Unfortunately, my old Mavica camera doesn't have a macro function, so these aren't great pictures, but you can at least see the results of my labors. In addition to these--all American flat-top double twists--I turned 25 7mm twists on Saturday and Sunday. No pictures--they are all boxed for the library.

    The first eight are ALL cocobolo, believe it or not:

    The last one is bocote:

    I can't decide which wood I like better, both have fabulous grain patterns and coloration.

    Thanks for looking.

    I'll let you see them in person next weekend, Bruce! But then I'll check your pockets before you leave

    They look pretty. Cocobolo is one of my favorite woods.
