That was my squeezin' arm...

A few more pens turned out today because I just can't seem to sit still. This morning we woke to around 8 inches of snow blowing and drifting through Northwest Ohio. It seemed like a good morning to sip some coffee and watch the plows clear the roads. I baked our favorite Dutch Baby oven popover for breakfast and finally got the motivation to shovel snow from the sidewalk. I should break down and get a snow thrower, but I tell myself this is good exercise and also good for the environment...(repeats to self again)...needless to say, my arms are like jell-o this evening. But that did not stop me from turning a few blanks I've had setup for a couple of weeks now (they were sitting there mocking me...they needed to be put on the lathe...really). From left to right: Corian Black Enamel Click Pencil, Corian Copper Ballpoint Twist Pen, Corian Gunmetal Ballpoint Twist Pen, and last, my very first Baron Rollerball. This is a platinum kit dressed in cocobola. I was surprised by the number of parts that go into its construction, which makes for a heavy, yet solid feeling pen.
