Pen turning

Recently I'm trying European pen turning.
It is fun but I need more technic for detail.
Especially I need to care connection area between blank and top or bottom of pen.
I tried bamboo blank first time, I like bamboo style!

Corn cob

It's corn cob.
I tried to make pen with it at first time.
It was very easy to turn, but very brittle similar to cork.
It was for our friend's birth present.

Crazy Hair

Haruki and Minami went school with their crazy hair.
Haruki asked Ritsuko to braid up his hair.
