I have been making a lot of pens like most new turners I’m guessing. Being new to turning and loving it, pens and bottle stoppers have been a good learning platform. Spindle work is pretty forgiving, bowls however hmmmm sometimes I think my middle name is “Catch”.....LOL

I have been making them for our men and women serving in the Armed forces which I really enjoy.

Acrylic pens are pretty but on the fence as there not really woodworking to me.

Bought and made some of the bullet pens with a cool little case and oh boy I can’t make these fast enough for people buying them. Too funny.

Thx for looking , all comments welcome.

WOW…...those are nice Ken. I have heard that turning pens is super addictive so I have decided to steer clear…I don’t need any more addictions…lol Great work!!

Thx everyone for the kind comments. It is addicting and fun and for a great cause as well. I have made a lot of them but never posted any being how many pens can you post? But I felt the rifle pen was worth sharing as I thought it was pretty cool.

Cheers to all of you thx again, ‘
