I bought the stuff to do pens a week or so ago. Just didn’t have time to do anything yet. I had never turned pens before. When my wife knew I was getting a Lathe, the first thing out of her mouth was, I want a pen. Well I went to the Kansas City Woodshow yesterday. I have never been to one at all. I had a blast!!
One of the booths they were letting you turn your own pen for free. So I figured why not get a free lesson. This is the pen I did. And what did I do but give it to my wife this morning… it’s turned from Bocote.

Now you are hooked! Run, run, as fast as you can away from any lathes that are near you. Awww too late? Nice looked pen.
