With a lot of woodworking under my belt, I’ve never turned a pen until recently at the Tampa Woodworking show.
(Thanks to the Polk County/ Tri County Woodturners)
A bunch of really nice guys who were kind enough to help me try this.
I think I may be hooked….. :)
The lighter one is Maple Burl and the darker one is Walnut I think.
Sanded smooth as a cue-ball and finished in friction polish.
With it getting hot down here in Florida already this year, short shop sessions are necessary and these don’t take very long to make.
This is the Slimline model and is the easiest to make.
I’ll get a little braver after I get my feet wet.
It took longer to clean up my mess out there than it did to make the pen !
Thanks for looking and have a great day.
