    Waste Not Want Not

    After turning and finishing on of Branden's (PenI8the) Wenge/Styrene segmented blanks I saved the shavings and cast in PR to make a couple more pens.

    The Longwood Click is finished with 6 coats of Satin MINWAX Oil Modified Water Based Polyurethane using my "Dipping Method".


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

    Gee Les, if I knew you were that hard up for wood to turn I would have sent you some the last time I was back at my shop in LA.

    The longwood pen looks beautiful, and I really like the way you staged the photograph. Looking forward to seeing the shavings pen when it's finished.

    Great looking pieces Les. That long would looks very good symmetrical. Would make for a unique design also if drilled offset, or even offset at an angle too.

    I trust you are going to save the shavings from the shavings pen to make another, and another, and....
