Very nice! I love the curly koa burl!

But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. James 3:17

+1 on the above statement, they are all very cool, but that curly koa is special.

Nice job Rich. They look great. My favourites are the Curly Koa and the Olive wood. If Mrs Brown is asking for pens, it may be time to slip in there that Santa should bring some new equipment for turning. Or if he can't bring it, maybe the new years baby could slip you some cash so you can go shopping. great work my friend.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

Very nice work. Some lucky folks in line for those gifts. I'm liking the Olive a lot.

Already taken care of Ken, Santa is bringing 4 jaw chuck, pen press, and a centering jig. I've been using my vise for a press (modified with wooden jaws) and same thing with a DP vise as a centering jig.

I'm also getting my Saw Stop nest month. I sold my old saw and I'm going to paint the shop floor before I setup the Saw Stop.
