Turning Pens

I am learning how to turn pens.  It has been fun but frustrating.  But it does come down to being a learning experience.

Here are some examples of what I have made so far.

The woods used (from left to right) are: Bethlehem Olive, Bethlehem Carob,  Bocote and Zebra wood.

The two Bethlehem woods are from Bethlehem.  The olive wood trees “are over 300 years old, and some have been growing since the time of Christ.” The wood is taken from branches that have been pruned or fallen limbs and/or trees.
