Seems I spend more time viewing projects than posting them. So… here are a few pens I turned a while ago. Pens from Left to Right: 1. Purpleheart Slim 2. Cocobolo Fat Summit 3. Corian Slim. Seems they end up in new hands almost faster than I can make them. The blue Corian looks off at the bottom but it is a photo oddity. The pen aligns properly and feels nice in the hand for a slim pen. That one was claimed by a friend for her birthday the day after finishing it. At first I was not sure how I would like working with Corian on a creative level but I have found it to be pretty good and I like the end results. I hope to do more with it in the future. Cheers!

Great job on the pens, love the Corian one, i had a friend who used to manage a cabinet shop/counter and he would give me all the pieces they had left over that were smaller than 2 sq. ft.

Jim … Thanks you! Love it too!

Norman … Much appreciated! My original source is no more, so I am looking for a new local source. Hopefully I will find one soon so I can try making other things out of it.
