    Good for you, Ken. I always like the acrylic ones in bright colors.

    Real nice, Ken.

    Man, when you start into something you really go for it, huh? That's more pens than I turn in a year.

    I agree with vaughn, more pens then I turn.... oh wait I've never done a pen.

    Well, sure looks like someone spent some money on bushings for at least three different kits. Slimlines, Euro and cigar? Very very nice group of pens! How did you like the third cigar (large pens, last picture) to the right? Crosscut wood? That really tears out easily without light cuts and sharp tools. You are on your way!!!!!!! Wish my first group of pens looked that great! For some reason, I remember working on that many pens the first time, but kept having spare parts or "shop" pens!! Great pens!!!
