    Out of the wilderness

    I really haven't done as much pen turning in the last year as I would have liked but have a renewed energy and have solved some real technical penturning headaches.

    I am half happy with this one. There are some real threading aesthetic issues but the fits together snug and tight.

    Had a good conversation with Phil a week and long story short. My tail and headstock alignment on the wood lathe are about 2 mm out which wont be helping.

    Anyway, here you go. first pen in a while.

    Thanks Geoff.

    It’s burr elm, friction polished then two coats of spray lacquer. It’s come up a treat!
