  1. Monkey Pod on Wall Street

    (that's pod, not paw) No bad luck wishes here. Platinum and Black Titanium dress up this twist pen, with a Hawaiian flavor. Very easy to turn wood, with a little bit of tear out at the ends, and a little bit of open grain and voids that sanded smooth beautifully. -- to completely steal from my...
  2. Bethlehem Olive Wood Cigar Pen

    Olive wood from the Holy Land (yes that Bethlehem). I've read about other projects made with this wood, and how it smelled like olive oil when turned. As soon as a piece finally made the rounds in the 3rd tour of the pen traders box (I love being a lumberjock!). I snagged it. Olive wood from...
  3. two, two-tone platinum pens

    Two Tone Bamboo Modified Slimline Actually a fast growing grass, but as tough as maple, bamboo is a very sustainable product. This design is actually a modification to the standard slimline kit. Rather than include the narrow centerband, instead I used an asymmetrical centerband of natural...
  4. Wedding Pens

This is one of the few that I really didn't want to see go, so I decided to turn another one for myself. Funny thing is that I've turned a few projects out of this mesquite, and every...
  6. Sassafras, Eurostyle.

    Mmmm,... smells like root beer! Well, at least while working the wood. Sassafras, a very durable wood, is used in cabinetry, buckets, barrels and poles and is quick to regenerate after a disturbance. It was used by colonists to make root beer, and is also used medicinally. Sassafras is a laurel...
  7. Desert Ironwood Pen in Platinum and Black Titanium

    I love this pen, and I love this wood. The grain is simply amazing. Desert Ironwood is a protected species, no living trees can be harvested. It grows in the Sonoran Desert in Southwest USA and Mexico, and you need a federal or state permit to be able to collect the dead trees from the desert...
  8. Marketplace Classifieds
    Hello fellow jocks. This is my first post on this site. From looking around, it seems like a tight knit community with some very knowledgeable craftsmen. Well, here's what i have. A very lightly used Shopsmith Mark V with many accessories. A 12 in. band saw, a 6 in. x 48 in. belt sander, a...
