Turnings for the weekend of October 21st

Having multiple social obligations this weekend, I did not have time to turn a lot of pens. I did manage to turn an Acrylic Atlas style pen with a red and black swirl pattern. I'm not a fan of the satin finish on this color combination, but my wife seems to like it enough. I also turned a Padauk European style twist pencil, and the last is a European Antler twist pen. The antler stock was obtained from Augums Penworks and came pre-drilled. One of the hardest pats of turning antler right off the rack is finding a suitable chunk and drilling it straight. The pieces that came were probably from a different animals so the match in color is way off. It is still an interesting contrast.
