Not real impressive but I’ll improve with practice. Used a slimline kit from Penn State industries.

Well I think it turned out really nice. What type of wood did you use?

Nice Job Dudley!
That came out great.
Judging from the volume of pens I see come across the project posts, I’d say you’ve been sucked in to the vortex!!!
That catalog Penn State sends out has some very tempting offerings in it.

Eric: Penn has the best prices that I’ve found so far. I have a gold pen & pencel kit I’m gonna do when I get a little more skill. I think I’m gonna use mahogany for them. Thank You.

Dudley nice jog one the pen. I just jumped on the band wagon. Three weeks ago i took a pen making class, and last week my lathe and tools came into the mail. I made three pens so far as soon as my camera gets charged i will take pictures and put them on lumber jocks. Ever since i was a little boy i was fasinated with the lathe. So I decided to get a small lathe to see if i wood enjoy working with it.

Shannon: I’m retired with nothing else to do, so I guess that will be acceptable.
