Very nice work, OC.
The watches are really nice. I have a couple of pocket watches I like to carry from time to time when I remember them.

Those deeks are beautiful.

The pens are also very nice.

Wow, that is nice. What kind of burl is that? Looks like it has some "birds eyes"in it.

Broad leaf maple burl. Can't say how many types of maple trees their are. A man brought a bunch to a carving show years ago. Still have a few pieces. As said, use a face shield as one slip into the outer edge it could shatter at that speed. Used the large Rockwell lathe at the seniors center wood shop. Around 2002-2004. No lessons involved. Then several men were learning to glue up and turn segmented bowels.

I have had one of these stainless steel insert kits to make turned wooden coffee mugs for awhile, but had not gotten around to it until last week. This one is some South Dakota apple wood with 6 coats of Birchwood Casey Gunstock finish on it.

Nice woodturnings. Looks great. I am a woodturner and pen maker myself.
