These are the pens I made over the past month or so. Some acrylics, most are exotic woods. Sorry for the blurry photo but no time for a proper setup as I have to get to work. I’ll post some clearer shots later.

Thanks for the kind words, everybody.

Jim, I haven’t done any craft shows and for that matter, have never sold a craft. But I am considering setting up a website and putting some of the pens up for sale. I’m beginning to realize making them can be an expensive hobby, so would like to offset some of the cost. Otherwise, I just give them to friends and family.

Arlin, here’s my order list for this bunch…

- 7mm Pen Kit Bundle: 8 Pen Kits and 3 sets of FREE Bushings and one 10 pack of Cocobolo Blanks

- 30 Caliber Bolt Action Gun Metal Bullet Cartridge Pen Kit

- 4 Telescoping Pen Kit Variety Pack

- 6 Patrizio Pen Kit Starter Package

- 5 Sculpted Pen Kit Starter Package

- 3 Faith Hope Love Twist Pen Kit Starter Set

A couple of them aren’t in the photo, but that’s the most of them.

Yeah, it does keep me out of trouble Randy.

Actually, no it doesn’t, but they are fun to make. :)

Well, I see there are different levels on this addiction. You seem to be ahead of me several stories, hahaha! You got really nice results :) I’m also building a website to sell some of my pens, to help buy even more kits!

Thomas, thanks for the kind words. I think there might be, or should be a special organization for us pen addicts. Pen Turners Anonymous or maybe a free help line :D I took a peek at your projects and I like your pens as well. The Printer ink stained ivy pen is remarkably similar to the one from my first batch, which I claimed as my own personal pen.

I can’t believe nobody mentioned the cheap disposable plastic pen, 7th from the left.
