I'm learning to use the lathe in my freetime at work. (I work in a woodshop, but we really only sand on the lathe) This is a calligraphy pen for my sister for x-mas. It's desert ironwood with a malachite bead on the tip. It didn't come out exactly as I pictured, but I'm pretty happy with it.

WOW! Your pen turned out wonderfully! (see what I did there?) I bet your sister was super tickled and touched to receive such a lovely handmade gift.

Oh, it did turn out beautifully! (ha ha!)
I wish this had been given to me as a gift, I would have absolutely cried with delight. It's so wonderful.

Thanks! I forgot to take a pic from that angle. Its very tiny, to fill the hole from the lathe.
