Last year I started turning pens. I have really enjoyed being able to take a project from start to finish in 45 minutes (or so). A few friends have asked me to make pens for them with “sentimental” pieces of wood – an old tree that fell on their property, etc. One of my partners was going on a trip to Greece last month.

I forgot to take a photo of the setup for drawing the arc, but basically I bowed a piece of plywood to the correct vertical distance at the center point of the arc and traced the curve with a pencil. Cut it out roughly on the bandsaw, and smoothed it out with sandpaper. Th...
