    Some thing different

    For a break from mug making I did these two pens today along with getting the lids to the boxes made up.

    Thank guys
    The first one is Wall Street II Elegant Pen Kit Black Titanium and Titanium Gold
    #149278 with a Tru-Stone Black w/Gold Matrix Pen Blank
    New! #150582
    The second one is a Wall Street II Pen Kit Copper #148777 With a bit of Mi. walnut.
    That blank will make 2 pens if you don't blow it up on one of them. When that happens one gets walnut.
    I wouldn't mind having several more of both kits. Compared to some of the slim line kits I have done these where a dream.

    It's really Titanium (kinda silver blue) but it's picking up more blue from the granite it's sitting on.

    Nice work Chuck!

    Both of those are beauts!!! I just started turning a pen much like that from woodturningz called a Mesa pen. I have two breast cancer pens completed, one shipped, another to the Relay for Life silent auction (a donation). Anyway, they are a nice change of pace and an elegant pen to boot!!!
