These are great pieces, Shawn, really beautiful. I've had a wonderful time viewing your site this morning. The machines a truly inspiring. I love to find old things and bring them back to life, or get them to someone who has the skill I lack. It's really satisfying, isn't it? This particular wood work is my favorite of all I've viewed today in the wood examples. I love the way you made use of what the wood offered and turned the variations into assets!

I stumbled upon your site while researching an Oliver table saw. Phenominal stuff!

Natural Grain Images
The natual grain of the wood can create "images". Kind of like looking at the clouds. I see a face, sort of like a lion's, in the center pen. Very cool!
You do awesome work - inspiring.

I have really enjoyed your tutorial and would like to try it for myself I do have one question though.
Is it possible to do this without the air pot and if so what extra steps are needed

Hi Shane you have certainly inspired me to cast and turn feather pens with this detailed tutorial I made my fist pen today following your instructions to the tee and I say that I have a good result that I'm happy with.
Many thanks Shane
