A few turnings after Yellowstone

After nine days away from the lathe on a well deserved and much needed vacation to Yellowstone National Park, I had a couple of kits lying around that needed to be turned/finished. From left to right, a Copper Wall Street II dressed in Amboyna Burl. I really did not think much of these kits when I first saw them, but the heavy weight and great balance really make for a nice writing instrument. The hardware really frames the wood quite well also. The second is a Platinum Cigar dressed in Aqua Acrylic. Both pens are ballpoint twist mechanisms.
