A few pens I made on my vacation.
I was going through my stash of woods and ran across a piece of Box Elder Burl I recieved in a swap with some one and I can’t remember who but thanks. I made a JR Gent in Black TI with it and forgot the tube taper and put it together backwards but I got it apart and fixed it.
The second I recieved in a swap with Austin here and it is Spalted Massarnaduba on a streamline kit and it lookes like snakeskin but cool.
Third is a piece of Camelthorne I picked up at WC in the bargain bin I put on a streamline pen
Fourth is a piece of Tiger Myrtle I picked up at WC in the bargain bin I put on a streamline pen
Fifth is a Texas Live Oak on a Sierra Style pen

They are all very beautiful! I love them. You do such nice work and have a great sense for picking out the prettiest wood! Nice job!

Nice work, my daughter wants me to buy a lathe to make pens, maybe I’ll have to think more about it.
I love the last picture with the great figure in the wood…

Keep up the great work.
