    A couple new pens

    Turned these today. 2 Graduate Magnetics and 2 Tec Bolt Actions. The colored pen is cross cut spalted Maple I colored and stabilized.

    Those are some great looking pens. Like the swirly patterns, assume you have multiple cuts and glue ups for those before turning.

    The dyed one is neat, but the wavy ones are the ones that really catch my eye. I really like those blanks.

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

    Your absence won't make a difference!

    Mack I identified them incorrectly. They are Graduate Magnetics.
