Here are a few pens that I made for Christmas gifts this year. (I can post them now because everyone’s received them!) Click the image for a larger view.
From left to right, there are two pens turned from holly, then one each from red oak, bloodwood, canarywood, zebrawood, and padauk. The red oak pen was turned from part of a rafter that was cut out of my brother-in-law’s former home in order to make room for an addition. The hardware is either gold, gun metal, or chrome. I have a few more made from rapala lacewood, marblewood, and yew, and I’ll try to post those later.
