I had some scrappy off cuts of burl and dropped them off at a mates place, Ian was getting into whats become known as "Wasted Wood Blanks".

He produced some amazing pieces these 4 pencils are just 4 of those colours used on making Workshop Pencils. I never use the centre band supplied after making the first two, my reason is simple one they are assembled its difficult to remove the mechanism.


A about 3 years ago I bought about 20 Jnr Gent kits roller ball and fountain pen, these have a 6 facet grip area. These have been sitting waiting to become pens.

Timbers are Spalted Mango, Bull Oak with laminated Cedar strip,



A Jnr Gent and a Chrome Baroness Fountain pen Roller Ball set x 2 using acrylic blanks.


Jnr Gents again New Guinea Rosewood, English Oak and Wenge, 2 x Camphor cross cut.

I have made a few pencils including the smaller sketch type I prefer these for size and feel females prefer the other.

Your so right Derek and me being into metal work, and I am venturing back into Ornamental Turning also wink just not enough hours in the day, shed space or cash flow.
