    Penmania!!

    Back to bowls and stuff next week, but for now....
    Apple from Thoits & Thoits of Beverly Hills that has a ton of curl!! Thanks Chuckster My wifes new carry pen, like she doesn't have several already. Seafoam from Exoic Blanks on a Ti Aero. This morning, the second fountain pen I've done...don't know why. Jr Gent gold on Cheechen. I've never turned it before and it reminds me of Cocobolo. CA x8 and wet sanded to 12k after every other coat. Acrylic is just wet sanded to 12k.
    C&C used on the next one

    Jim,

    Very nice looking group of Writing Instruments!
    Form, Fit and Finish look great as usual.
    I particularly like the Seafoam barrel on that Ti Aero.
    Well done.

    Innovation is the process that renews something that already exists and not, as is commonly assumed, the introduction of something new.

    What Les said.

    My only critique is on the photos. Looks like your white balance is a bit off, as the background has a pink tint to it. Here's a quick Photoshop tweak to show what I mean...

    Thanks bud, that looks cool...er! I need a better camera. 1949 Polaroid...not really, but it is an old Polaroid digital and I'm not the best operator of its foreign nomenclature.
    Maybe a good Nikon pocket at Target...I'm on a budget!

    The perception of perfection is perfectly clear to everyone else
