Well, this is pen #2. I can’t take full credit. It was turned to round and almost to the bushings by my 9 year old. Yes, she turned 9. I’m not sure how it happened. We brought this smelly little screaming thing home from the hospital yesterday…today, she’s 9. This is the standard slimline kit with a canarywood blank that we bought from Lee Valley. It’s finished with watco and liberon wax. Thanks for looking. If you haven’t tried pen turning, you really have to read _Wayne's Blog about it and give it a try. I find it quite therapeutic. It’s a quick project that you can finish easily in one night. If you prepare a few blanks and glue the tubes, you can have a few nights of turning pleasure. Sure you can turn them in 5 minutes if you want, by where’s th enjoyment in that?
