as the wood turns

This weekend I purchased a 10 pack of European Style pen kits (really a savings over the individual packs) and turned seven of the ten. All the blanks are prepped and ready to be put on the mandrel, I just couldn't do anymore today (too much time standing at the lathe...back hurting, age showing. etc...). The stock all came from a Woodcraft grab bag, so I'm not entirely sure what some of them are, but from left to right around the arc: purpleheart, aromatic cedar, walnut, zebrawood, not sure (might be white ash), yellowheart, basswood.
