    Introduction with some pens.

    Thought it would be suitable to introduce myself here next to Mack as he is the one that encouraged me to join family woodworking. I, like Mack, enjoy turning pens. Attached are a few of my latest. Left to right: Brazilian Rosewood(top), Honduras Rosewood Burl(btm),next- Cocobolo(top), Bethlehem Olivewood(center), Tulipwood(btm), next-Coffee and Cream(top), Buckeye Burl(center), Amboynia Burl(btm), next-Trustone blue turquois(top), Maple burl(center), Spalted Birch (btm),next- Honduras Rosewood Burl(top), Red Oak burl (btm).

    Bill, welcome to FW. A few more penturners and we will be able to take over the place.
    Your pens look fine and you have really fine finishes. Personally, I'm not a fan of the fat, or bulgy look. I did it early on with my pen making but have since abandoned.

    It feels great to sell a pen,
    It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

    If your presence doesn't make an impact;
    Your absence won't make a difference!
