Good pens! Your’s actually look like pens! Be warned, turning is a very slippery slope, you may forget you have a table saw. I use mine as an extra work bench.

Very nice pens. I agree with Hix, My table saw is more of a bench now also.haha
Great job. Keep it up.
Look forward to seeing what else comes from your next class.

Ah, handsome writing instruments. I like the fat lower end, fits well in my crooked fingers and makes for better hand writing. Your pics display color and finish lookin’ real good.
Enrolling in a class is well worth it. The ability to pick brains from experts is priceless.
Hix and Scrappy… Please eloborate on your “table saw” comments. We are near desparate for details.

PineInTheAsh, Actually used my saw today cutting staves for a bowl I will turn. Other then that Haven’t used it for much lately. Usually use the band saw to prep stuff for the lathe. The table saw is in the middle of the room and gets to become a catch all.
