this is my first complete pen turning. I made this one for my dad, he always had a liking for oak. His birthday is coming soon so I thought this would be perfect for him.

I made my first pens about a year ago and I’ve been having fun making them since. Great job

Congratulations on your first pen. It’s an addictive hobby, but very rewarding for ourselves and our friends. I went from one workshop at Woodcraft to selling my golf clubs to buy my first lathe, to giving everyone pens for holiday gifts, now to taking the occasional commission and starting on bowls.

Post more of your stuff…
