A couple new pens

I tried laminating and one is walnut/lacewood and the other is sassafras/walnut/spalted maple.

The first one I just made the walnut a little bigger than the bushings and added the lacewood to each side. The other, I ripped a spalted blank in half on the table saw and ripped the other woods about a 1/16th each. I did it all using my cross cut sled.

Thanks for the compliments.

Well glad you got a chance.
I finally picked up a lathe, but haven't had time really to tinker with it.
Hopefully when I do, my skills can be as good as yours.

This looks fabulous -- and that's a great finish you achieved, looks like it's coated with glass

(Nothing against your first two, but they don't float my boat ...)

Thank you very much. I appreciate the feedback on the other two as well. They have been complimented by ppl in person but I definitely like the burl better too.

Hopefully you can get started soon. Looking forward to seeing what you do. I'm guessing with your affinity to rustic, we'll see some natural edge from you. :-)
