For several weeks I have been looking at a lot very nice pens nd cutting boards so I thought that I would give it try. I went to wood craft for the turning for the troops where I turned my first pen. I was hooked. Here are some pictures of my first four pens and a couple of cutting boards that I put together using some scraps that I had around my shop, I hope you enjoy and any comments as always are welcome. Sorry about the pictures not much of a photographer, didn’t notice how dirty the boards were when I took the pictures they have been out in my shop while I was milling wood for a hope chest for my niece.

Nice, although you should be careful with oak on cutting boards. The wide open grain can make it difficult to clean, woods with tighter grains are better, like maple, walnut, purpleheart, cherry. If that isn’t red oak in one of them, then ignore me :)

Looks pretty good Bubba. Please be very careful…. I heard somewhere that turning can become addictive.

Look out pyromedic602, it does become addictive. I saw an article on a guy who had made over 30,000 of them. Great job on the pens.

Thank to all for the comments they are greatly appreciated.

Grumpy yes I have noticed that it is addictive. I have turned five including my first cigar pen that I turned today using some Paduak I got from Greg3G. Have had a few request for some from family and friends.
