    Pens from Pen Swap blanks..

    I finally got to do a few of the blanks from the Pen Swap.
    Some one stuck a blank of cast corn that I thought was neat so I glombed on that that immediately... also found some Mango and KOA.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.

    All three are very nice, Chuck, but the cast corn is my favorite. Great job(s).

    It was marked Spalted Mango... really a nice wood to turn.

    Don't think you can grow Mango in Michigan though
