I’m addicted to my lathe and pen’s turning.

I’ve made two holders for my pens

I used red cedar

You are definitely addicted…

The style of your pen is evolving.

I like them

Very nicely done on all areas. I have done about 100 pens and am still adicted to it. They are great fun to make.

Hi Jack,

This is a great way to show your nice work. Do you plan to give them as gifts? Or perhaps you work in a stressful office and you chew them? LOL

Question: What did you use as uprights? They seem to be clear plastic or maybe grass columns. Thanks.

Hello Serge

Thanks for the comments.

I will try to sell them or to give them as gifts

The uprights are clear plastic (plexiglas)

Very nice. I’m going to make me some. Got plenty of scrap and it’s gotta be cheaper than buying them. Nice pens too. Isn’t this addiction great!
