    Student pens from last year

    I was taking pictures of current turning projects, found these in the memory card so thought you might enjoy seeing how the students progressed last year and their final exam was a unique pen. Some were more unique than others. I think they are pretty self explanatory, but would surely explain if you have questions.

    You got some talent there Jonathan. All look like keepers to me.

    Thanks guys. Yes, they were using their heads to come up with a pen that fit the "unique" catagory. Even though some were not turned on a lathe, they had to utilize their knowledge of building pens to make them. So, starting with three more classes, eager students, who knows what will come out this year.
