WayneC posted a great blog entry on Turning a Pen with outstanding instruction and resources. Using Wayne’s blog and resources, I started turning a few pens and have found a lot of enjoyment in a quick little project in the shop. I have limited shop time and while I stall on a large entertainment centre as a feature in our home theatre, as well as trying to find the time for the summer entries, I’ve been spending some quality time with my lathe.
With the help of WayneC’s blog, and with an inability to goad him into doing a video (he actually had legitimate reasons but I love my petty torments,) I’ve done a video on basic pen turning of a slimline pen kit.
Thanks for looking and please contribute to the LJ Cyber Skillshare program. I’ll be gather up some resources and info for a Howto podcast on setting up your contributions. I’m going to demonstrate from both a Windows based PC side and the Mac side. Stay tuned for that feature in the next couple of weeks.
