Now that the craziness of the past few months has started to calm down, I wanted to try to get back onto the lathe and hone those skills somewhat. I started with a couple pens made from pieces of aromatic cedar off of my in-laws' lake property.
This time I made a pen from a tropical hardwood called zebrawood. The pen is a black and chrome twist pen kit, and I finished it with six coats of CA and a couple rounds of buffing compound. It's up for sale on Etsy, if anyone's interested. A bunch of pictures after the jump.
