I wanted to turn a pen for the longest time. Ended up doing this one at the Springfield, MA WW show.
Material is lightly figured maple, with a slim pen kit. I like how it came out to be.

I have been wanting to make a pen but I would have to buy a lathe and all the goodies it still is in my to do list. Looks like a fun to do project after I retire.

Very nice pen. My starter kit from psi arrived today and I am waiting for the glue to dry on my first one.

I don’t have a lathe or the room for one but every time I see something like this I get the urge to try and fit one in and learn to use it.Nice job. I’m partial to both Maple’s looks and it’s workability.
