    With a Titanium Gold RT Euro 8mm Premium Double Twist.
    Shortened the tenon to expose the brass twist holder flange.
    Sanded with 400 grit and buffed with super fine steel wool
    while still on the lathe and polished with Hut Ultra Gloss.
    As always comments and or suggestions appreciated.
    Thanks for looking.

    You are a pen turning fiend!

    Ok, I've had it. I've got to get some of those blanks. Same supplier as your other camo pens? I'm going to go place an order.

    I love that pen!

    Yup,

    It's confirmed, you are a bad influence on me. I've seen enough of those beautiful acrylic pens you've been showing off lately...

    Just went and looked and orderd me some new acrylic blanks with some interesting names.

    Jungle Camo, Mystic Purple, Atomic Green

    Good think last week I ordered a bunch of pen kits!

    Thanks for the inspiration Les!

    Yeah, I'm gonna have to get me some of the camo blanks. I've got some nephews and a brother-in-law who'd love them.

    And Les, you're a machine, buddy. Not only is the pen great, the photos are catalog-ready.

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!
