Must be nice to have finished projects in such a short time. You must have the process down pat. Nice looking pens.

nice work

Looks great...I like the slim ones personally. I've never liked a chunky pen, but chunky women, they're fine with me. bill

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

To be fair, I cut, drilled and glued the tubes in yesterday, so all I had to do this morning was turn, finish and assemble them. I personally don't like the CA finish (smell and feel) so my finish is 2-3 coats of a shellac/walnut oil/carnuba wax finish (sort of like Shellawax) that goes on quickly before they come off the lathe.

Holy crap, what kind of machine are you?
These pens are beautiful. Fantastic stuff.
Do you ever leave your lathe?

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

Doesn't seem like it some times, but yes I do get away from the lathe on occasion. Been a good summer for the craft shows and farmer's markets, so my inventory has gotten quite low on certain things. Fountain pens and cutting boards tomorrow, key chains Wed., who knows on Th, Craftshow Fri-Sun... Livin the dream!
