    Don't you guys just hate it when a self-professed "newbie" shows up and lays out a spread of gorgeous looking stuff?

    Great job, Joan! I like some of the unique shapes you've come up with. Keep up the good work!

    I'd say you're definitely getting the hang of things, Newbie Girl! They all look very nicely done. Personally, I'm not a big fan of the bump in the barrel, but a lot of folks do like it, so don't take that as a negative at all. You did a great job.

    Nice Job Joan!
    Thats where I started, turning pens.
    It didn't take long before I started moving on to other stuff like bowls and Hollow forms, Keep on having fun and can't wait to see where this progresses.

    Great job Joan on a great looking bunch of pens. I started there myself so it will be interesting to see where you progress from here. Keep'em coming.

    All I can say is WOW

    I don't know even from which side you start making them

    Oh, I was looking for the "Goofs included"....I gave up...all I can see is beautifully made pens.
