Well, for me it was a marathon, at least it felt like one. This years production just about doubles the number of pens I've turned in my lifetime. Yeah, I don't turn a lot of them, but do enjoy it when I do.

From left to right, bolt action in kingwood, Artisan European in olive, Olympian II In purple heart, smart phone stand in mesquite, Dura click in walnut and Artisan American in Rosewood.

I'm a fan of the edc clickers and olympia rollerballs.
Nice group shot Tim. What is your finish of choice on these?

Thanks everyone.

Marc, these are all finished in CA. A couple of them were finished more than once with CA , if you get my drift.

Ben, agree with you there, acrylic is such a pain to clean up after. Much prefer turning just wood.

The Olympian II is pretty special. The black and Purple Heart work well together, especially with the silver. My hat is off to you for the number of different kits in one day.
