Evening All,
Tomorrow evening is an anniversary dinner for the woodturning group I joined this past year.They are asking folks to not only bring food but also items that they make. It is open to the whole family so I am looking forward to taking my wife and daughter and having them see some of the really nice stuff that other members of the group make. They are also asking for folks to bring stuff that other family members due whether it is wood related or not. So my wife will be taking some sewn items, maybe a piece of pottery if I can talk her into it. As you can see in the 3rd and 4th pics my daughter turned a pen to day so she could take it with her.

In the 1st pic is a collection of various Slimline pens with different clips on them.
2nd picture shows some 7mm variations.
5th pic shows a pen tilt I made quickly today with a pen that has been around for a bit but gave a nice contrast to the tilt.

Thanks all for looking, I hope everyone has a good weekend in and out of the shop. I have a number of projects to be working on and looking forward to them.

Hi Chris, they all look great, and I like your tilt pen for a different angle of things! My son saw you daughters T shirt and liked it. Gotta love working with kids, cheers.

Thanks for the comments folks.
In regards to the pen tilt t is 5 1/2” long by 1 1/4” wide the angle I used was 15° . There are a few pens that it will not hold but i tried about 6 in it and they all seem to balance. Oh and the wood is a scrap of Paduak. Makes a fun add on to a pen. Can also personalize them pretty easily.

Rustic, Oops sorry I forgot that part. I used a 3/8” in hole and slightly chamfered the edge with a chamfering tool.

Also here is an earlier one that I did which is larger and has a quote put on it.

They all look gr8! I really like the holder in the last pic. Be sure to let the pen modeler know that she did a very good job. :)

Preston
As Rick mention you can go thru PSI, I buy mine from woodturnerscatalog.com, rockler and woodcraft also sell them. If you want something a little more special also check out woodnwhimsies.com.
Hope to be able to see those olivewood pens when they are done.
