Some Pens

After Three days makin'pen full immersion,
Almost ready for the first pubblic turning exibition on friday,
in a antique and artistic stuff market, friday's event...
So once you get it you must keep place warm,
it's about 130 km far from home,
but if the car work i have no problem walkin it...

I've working on preparing all this stuff,
looking for a plane surfaces where show all my WoodStuff i found it hide in my mansard
a couple of white laminated board...

It's time to look if i can make a woodturning a true profession...






unknow Wood...
really nice to turn...
it's kind of rose literally wood, but it's not...
fantastic brown colour with grey reflection, like dust ash colour..
Hearth is spongy...
Need straight piece...
Wood really hard and Compact, easy to broke at the end when you drilling space to fit brass tube in...





from top left to right...a couple of White Oak, then a couple of Ilex (quercius Ilex)...
Then some resin material,
English Yew, brown malee, river rose..



Sanding till 600..
All finished with CA Glue....three-four coats for all process.....

Cheers
Paolo
