Here’s a few images of a couple of pens from my new lathe. The top pen is a Manhattan style made with a wood called “Bubinga”. The lower pen is a Cuban style made from certified Olive wood from Palestine.
I’ve made about 6-7 pens so far. A few from Acrylic and a few in wood. I’ve torn up and ruined more blanks than I want to admit. Just too aggressive with the gouge and chisel.
