Those look great, Dennis. I got hooked on turning fancy blanks a couple years ago. Seemed like they cost me about $5.00 extra per pen, but I could charge an extra $10 because they looked much better.

I was looking at those blanks at Woodcraft yesterday. Never made a pen before but I'm thinking about it.
Nice looking !!

Isn't it amazing how you forget what it cost when it all comes together, works, and is just amazing!!!! But man the pain when one of those blow up on the lathe! That is a nice one!!!!
God and family, the rest is icing on the cake.
I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place.

Great looking pens out of some beautiful wood.

Those are lookin' fine.
Ambonya burl is one of the prettiest woods there is. I can't make up my mind between it and Big Leaf Maple Burl.
