    Omega pens

    I finish these today. These kits are called Omega and they are from the U.K. Right to left they are acrylic, Osage, Walnut, Maple and stabilized Buckeye burl. The Osage, Walnut and Maple are my signature serpentine blanks.

    Great finishes on those. The serpentines are reminscent of a, now deceased, turner who made some very wild piece-ups a few years ago.

    Nice looking pens. The buckey is darker than a lot of pictures I've seen, I like it. The Osage swirls is very subtle and cool - hopefully the osage doesn't brown up to much on you; the "honey swirl" look you have there works really well.
