    Pen Blank Scraps........

    Used to do some small turnings.

    Yeah, but how big are they next to REAL money?

    Seriously, those are some great pieces. The red goblet in the first picture and the black and white lidded urn both especially caught my attention.

    First picture, fourth item in, the contrast between the barrel and foot, that is just amazing!! Will be showing these to my students. What kind of chuck do you have to hold these?

    Those are some really great little items. Very neat turnings.
    They may be marketable to serious doll house folks. Doll house people can get very serious about their avocation.

    Looks like I started something here

    I wonder how many more small things will start to appear. Majkes a nice change from those huge bowls you all seem to like doing.

    These are very well done. Good proportions, that's the hard part isn't it. Not a huge fan of segmented work but it looks good on these

    Jonathan,

    I use a collet chuck for all my miniature turnings.
