A few pens, and a razor

I recently purchased a lathe, and turned my first pen. After that I couldn’t stop. The Razor and the first pen are made from red heart. The mesa style pen is dyed box elder burl. The 3rd pen is a red white and blue acrylic bullet pen. Followed by the curly maple cigar pen. And last but not least, I threw in a “cotton candy” acrylister pen that my wife made. She is actually pretty good, if I say so myself, although I may be a little biased :)

Very nice. I was not aware that the razors were available. Now I want one too.

Thanks! Here is a link to the page where I found them. Finding the stands that get turned is a little harder to find than the razors themselves. I have found that most places just sell metal stands.

Nice looking stuff! Turning is very addicting. My wife is also an addict and has turned many more items than I have. I love the razor. The only reason I shave regularly is because I made one. Except for about 2 days a month, I work from home and can look like a bum.
