As promised... the pen I was working on.
Hey plaztix - came to look for somewhere to post a couple of my finished items and after replying to you in thread just yesterday, your name popped out and I had to take a look - really glad I did too!
Beautiful bit of casting and some gorgeous work in that pen - well done that chap ',;~}~
Since I started on my journey I came across lots of penturners, their posts and tutorials, and well for decades I would have killed for a lathe anyway, but just a few months ago my wonderful father in law gave me an old Emco Unimat SL in stellar order - just big enough to help with some of my jewellery work, and to have a crack at picking up pen-turning - seemed only fair if I was to be making unique pen blanks that I knew how they needed to perform (already done knives from my handle materials/blanks).
So after almost 3 years of readiong lots of posts on Int. Ass. Penturners (I get my stabilising resin from Curtis/Mesquite Man one of the mods there too) I finally joined up short while ago - maybe I'll get good someday but either way, I'm sure to enjoy myself.
Again, congrats on the work - primo example bud. ',;~}~
