Roll that beautiful lathe footage...

How could I resist? The weather was even warmer this afternoon then on Tuesday! That combined with having setup extra blanks on Monday meant I could turn a few more pens today. From left to right: A classic fountain pen with postable cap and black enamel hardware dressed in spalted pecan. This was a new kit for me to try which assembled pretty nicely, although I think the manufacturer cheated by not including a refillable pump. The second is a sister to the Amboyna Burl Gatsby pen I turned on Tuesday. I tried to get a bit more detail on the swirled grain patterns but cannot get the camera to capture the depth. Trust me when I say this is a beautiful piece of wood which I think I'll be ordering more of in the future.
