I just got into pen/pencil turning around Christmas and I have done a few pens here is some pictures, so far it's been so much fun, I have acquired a lot of different woods I have over 45 kinds! The pencil kits I have are all metal, no plastic parts!
Also hunting for incredible burls is great! I plan on turning higher end pens now, those: Majestic Pen Kits at Penn State Industries
In case anyone is interested the wood from left to right are:
Walnut burl, Chakte Kok (pens)
Walnut burl (pen)
Afzelia burl, Acacia (those are pencils)
Checen burl, spalted sugar maple (pens)
Hurray for woodturning-fi + pencil-fi!
