  1. dyed/stabelized wood

    I was given the opportunity to test a new blank for someone on another site. He sent out blanks to about 10 of us. This is the result of my test. It is dyed/stableized Maple. It was finished with CA then buffed. I splurged on a $19.99 photo tent/light kit to try and improve my photos so...
  2. Euro-Style Pens

    What I did with my Sunday. Euro Style twist pens. The top row is walnut and maple in various designs - mostly I was trying different things with glue-ups. These are the designs I liked, the rest went in the burn barrel. The kits are inexpensive gun-metal models from Craft Supplies USA. I...
  3. Finally, some shop time

    Finally got some shop time between the freak snow storms, rain and cold weather in south Louisiana. I had a flag inlay kit for some time that I picked up at Woodcraft and some inlay kits that I wanted to do. The inlay kits are really nice but you can't get in a hurry with them. And the blank...

  4. More pens (and a little story)

    Fortunately for me, a lot of the work I do really helps people who need it. In this case, it was my grandson. He had a little (?) problem with school and authority and was rapidly going down hill. For those of you who know kids in that situation I highly recommend the National Guard Youth...
  5. Make that a Double (Knot)

    having succeded in the single celtic knot, it was time this weekend to double up. Here's my Sapele cigar with maple double knot using Gary's technique. The kit is black chrome.
  6. Gifts for a trip

    We're starting to plan a FL trip here soon so I wanted to get ahead of things and knock out some gifts for the different friends and family we're staying with. The first going left to right is a baseball bat bottle stopper made from an ash baseball billet. I used a Ruth Niles stainless stopper...
  7. 2nd Pen-Zebrawood

    This is my second pen turned on my new lathe. The first one was of acrylic but this one is made from Zebrawood. Nothing fancy to note except that I used the Micro Mesh system for the first time and took the finish up to 12,000. Then a coat of Crystal Coat and it was all done. This is a slimline...
  8. Buckeye Burl Pen

    This is a Jr. Gentleman's with Buckeye Burl and a finish of friction polish, shellac, and some beeswax to shine it up a bit. This was "Stabilized", which I guess means that it's infused with plastic or something… All I can say is it smells funny when turning, and you definitely want to wear a...
  9. Modified Slimline pen

    This centerband-less chrome slimline is the result of thinking about Scott's slimline experiment, seen here: The start I wanted to make a slimline with a little shape, keep it comfortable, do away with the CB, and make it flow. This is what I came up with. The barrels are cut sharp to the...
  10. Blood Orange

    With all the false starts on this pen, I should call it Blood (Sweat and Tears) Orange! I should also be proud of myself for managing to complete, what started out as a simple Osage Orange pen, that on more than one occasion should have ended up in the burn pile, not once, but three times. I...
  11. Look maw' No lathe ( Razor handle w/Inlay)

    This a razor handle that I did a few months back, like the title says I used no lathe to comlplete it. It is made out of a pen blank of Argentine Lignum Vitae, a Woodcraft chrome razor kit and crushed Turquoise. It is all done with hand tools and my trusty Dremel tool with lots and lots of hand...
  12. not sure what to call this cigar

    While working on my double knot, I wanted to make something else as well. Here's what I came up with. upper barrel: the dots are maple inlays (they only appear on the side of the pen currently displayed). I used a forstner bit and plug cutter to make these. lower barrel: The long strip is also...

    Just some misc pens Pic 1, Red Palm slimline Pic 2, Purpleheart Designer Pic 3, Goncalo Alves Cigar Pic 4, Tulipwood slimline Pic 5, Black and white Ebony slimline Pic 6,Padauk Slimline
  14. Yet another Knot

    I guess the celtic knot is taking a front seat in some of my pen work. This is a chrome cigar in Goncalo Alves with osage orange bands and a four-ring knot of bloodwood and osage orange. The pen is finished with a typical CA process: sanding seal using thin CA, Micro Mesh, several coats of...
  15. Bowling Pens

    I turned a few pens today in an attempt to get one good one to include in the pen swap. These are made from bowl scraps from past projects. I need some help from fellow Lumberjocks to pick the lucky pen. The first one is from my Big Leaf Maple bowl. The second pen is made from Crotch Honey. The...

  17. Composite Countertop Pen

    This is the 31st item in my 30 day project/challenge & auction. ... oops. Looks like I forgot to stop! Actually I had started turning this about 1/2way through this challenge. I think it would have been the second Atlas pen I'd have posted… but turing this 3/4 (if not 4/4) thick blank down was...
  18. Home Sweet Turtle Home

    Not really a woodworking project, this 16' x 4' carpentry project was built in 3 LONG days of summer heat. The frame is made of redwood, the doors and top are made of cedar. The "windows" are heavy gauge hardware cloth wire stapled into the window frame. I used a kreg jig build the entire...
  19. Whitetail Antler Cartridge

    These are the chrome cartridge kits from woodturningz.com with whitetail antler. The one on the right was drilled off-center so I could get a bit of the spongy center of the horn (filled with medium CA and antler dust) to show. My Father-in-law is a bug deer hunter, and one of these is for him...
