My first time turning pens. I was able to finish both before my 22 month old woke up from her nap. Can’t beat that!

Hope you enjoy.

Great looking pens, well done! And Nils, you hit the proverbial nail on the head.

Beautiful pens! Either you’re fast on the lathe or your child takes very, very long naps. Mine would have to be in a coma for me to turn two pens. lol. Great job.
