This is my first pen 100% on my own! A slimline with Holly wood.

I got my new Grizzly lathe set up and was able to get all the pen making stuff out of the bags finally! Turned with Easy Wood Tools Rougher and Detailer, finished with Mylands sealer and polish. It’s not perfect, could have turned the ends a bit more to the bushings, but not bad I think! Any comments welcome, thanks for looking!

I like the different color pens like the blue, green, red, and copper. You can do so much with them.

Great job

This is an awesome pen. I love the blue pen parts with the white wood.

Have your say...
