    Bunch of stuff...pic heavy

    Yes...I still turn, but pic's and posting are my nemises!
    From a pen swap on another forum;
    My first and still really in awe of, aluminium slim...it is crazy and writes like a gel!!!
    My other partner some of you know, Mike Cruz sent me a ton (almost) of end cuts, beautiful! But in the box was a deer antler Ultra Cigar is nothing short of amazing!
    Next I made a glulam beam section sent by Curtis from TurnTex.com...it's really cool looking!
    A 10" curley maple platter with a bead and dye job. I only have one more piece of this stuff
    Have a buttload of this 1000 year old Redwood so while I was in a platter mood...simple so the grain would show through.
    Last is a Black ash burl Ligero. Wood from Keller...it is just plain sweet...it has a semi-twin that has a new home.
    Thanks for looking...C&C always used on the next ones!

    Dang bud when did you start turning pens.That Keller burl sure is sharp,and those platters are first rate. Now as far as sending that twin off to NM . Ok he'll more than likely use it more than most. Hey on a serious note glad to see your getting some turning time in,and that new job ain't taking up all your time.
