    Pen Blank Swap

    Here's my first pen turned from the 'Pen Blank Swap'.
    It's spalted maple, not stabilized. The grain is amazing! Gun metal pen kit from Rockler.
    Couple coats of 'EEE' friction polish/wax.
    I will post more pics as I complete more pens.

    Thanks all. BTW, there is a few coats of CA on there also. Just getting Frank's stabilized 'redbud' and some other spalted blanks ready for turning. I just received 10 'Silver Bullet' pen kits from CSUSA that I'm going to use on some of the spalted blanks. L8R

    Nice work Ted! Something that I found..the hard way, is CA and wax, in some combinations, don't work well DAMHIKT. As you progress in pens, you may find that the CA is a better finish. With a clean paper towel and a can of accelerator, you can finish a pen with 4 coats of CA in less than a minute...and have it look great! The downside is that every time I order kits, I order thin CA
