Finished up another batch of pens for Freedom Pens and working toward a grant our company offers for community projects which I will donate to the Freedom Pens Project. Also some other pens I worked on. They include a circuit board pen which is going as a retirement gift, a inlayed turtle pen, a pen for the wine lovers and a pen for the banker. My wife, who is the wine drinker of the family, really loves the wine pen.

Very nice. I haven’t made any pens yet but it’s another project avenue on my bucket list. Any advice on choosing a lathe?

Thanks for the comments. Matt, a good starter lathe is one of the mini lathes, either Jet, Delta, or Rikon.

Those are some nice looking pens. How was the inlay to turn? I have been wanting to do one, but it looked too complicated.

Joe, the inlay pens do have a learning curve but they do make nice pens. The main thing to remember is to read the instructions and take your time, don’t get in a hurry. Start with a simple kit and work your way up to the more difficult ones.
