Fountain pens

Here are 5 fountainpens I turned today. The kit is PSI Classic Elite 2, 24 kt gold. The woods are curly maple (burl?), douglas fir, cocobolo, bocote, paduak. Finish is a homemade friction polish (shellac, walnut oil and carnuba wax).

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

wow, those are gorgeous. I love the stuff you turn. It all looks so flawless. Great job.

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