OK, I got my mini lathe, tools and a bunch of pen turning supplies. Started turning this last weekend to pump out some pens for the people at the office. I laid out my selection of wood and acrylic blanks on my desk and everyone chose their favorite. Of course, no one in the office knows what I am doing with them. Lets see how it goes since I am using this round to start the learning curve.

Good luck on your turning project. Post some photos of your work when completed.

Have fun, I got a mini lathe last Christmas and started turning pens in Jan. Can be addicting and somewhat costly. looking forward to seeing your work.
