    Turned another pen

    Decided I needed a quick fix for a finished project...and then I made it a little difficult! Walnut with cherry inlay.

    Really nice swirl pattern. I'd say you really made that more difficult. Nice finish and execution!

    Wow, that's a great pen, Ed. I don't think I've seen one with a swirl pattern like that. Way to think outside the box.

    Not sure the total process for Ed's swirl. But here is a tutorial I did for a simpler version.

    Good job Jon, That's basically what I did. I used a hand saw for a thinner kerf and some veneer, but it's the same idea!

    I haven't tried my hand at turning a pen as yet. That is an awesome pen. Thanks for the tut on how to do it.

    Jon, that's downright clever. Thanks for the tut. I'm not very clever but that looks like something even I could do.
