    • Favorites
      • Huon Pine. Nice buttery color, very easy to turn. Great wood to teach how to turn a pen. Typically not found in the US, but it is available through Ebay and Etsy.
    • Least Favorite
      • Inlace Acrylester. Apparently, a chord was struck on this one as all three hosts agreed that Inlace Acrylester is the devil itself. It chips and blows out way too easily. Bob recommended a sharp HSS tool and lowering the speed of the lathe.
