My wife got me a mini lathe last Christmas. I’ve been doing some pen turning, it’s a good diversion to work on between larger projects. I hope I’m a better woodworker than photographer. I’ve turned some from deer antler’s and made them to look like 30 cal ammo

These are nice looking pens. It does look like they would be fun to do. A lathe is one of the tools that is on my short list. And whenever I see a turning post like this it makes me regret not having one in my shop.

Thanks for the post.
