Here are a couple of more turned pens of Hickory and Zebrawood that I turned this afternoon. Both are the American Flattop style. The one the left is made of Hickory and the one on right is made of Zebrawood.
When I first started to turn the Hickory I thought it was quite plain but when finished it showed a great contrast. I have become quite partial to it.
I expected the Zebrawood to be hard to work because it appears ‘splintery’. However, it turned quite nice and created a nice ribbon affect throughout it’s length.
Back to the shop…
