Here is my first pen. Made it just in time for Valantines Day for the Misses. It is made of Maylasian Rose Wood. I had a few learinig experiences on the first try (see my pen blog), but thanks to LJ many friends pointed me in the right directions with blogs and a great video. I have to brag that my wife was impressed but I was afraid she would stab me in the neck when I told her that pen cost about 180.00. I told her that the good news was I would only have 90.00 between the first and second pen. (he he). There is room for improvement, but you got to start somewhere. Really enjoyed the project. It’s something that you can see the end results quickly. Will be building more in the future.

Way to go! I still have, and still use my number one. Keep turning, it is about as much fun as you can have without risking arrest.

Nicely done,
You should be proud of that one.

I have still not ventured into the turning world.

I can see it on the horizon….........................

Very well done. Build a few more to depreciate all those tools and supplies. Pretty soon, people will be asking for them.

Great job1
