    Seasons greetings to all. Dabbling in the turning arts and experimenting with a variety of projects from minibats, bowls, pens, cutting boards and ring holders. At 67, I am looking at a transition to retirement on the horizon and enjoying learning new skills and enjoying the products from a little manual labor and creativity. Will be looking for lots of guidance along the way and gaining information from all you experts out there!

    Hey, Dennis, welcome to the forum. Nice stuff. One thing I ask though is that you always identify the specific woods used when you show pics so we don't have to ask or guess. Thanks.

    So sorry! Will do in future! One bowl and the pens, coincidentally, are olive wood, the other bowl is Purple Heart and the board is a lively combination of brown wood, marble wood, walnut, Purple Heart and maple. Got a few more of those ready for family gifts, but shhh, don’t tell anyone! I’ve completed about 50 pens so far in a variety of woods and styles.
