My dad decided that I should take up pen turning and so for Christmas my parents bought me a small lathe. These are some of my first projects. Picture 1 are the first 5 pens that I turned I have since given away all but 1. Picture 2 is the 7th Pen I turned, no picture of #6, that I gave to my dad for his birthday, it seemed fitting to give him a pen. Picture 3 is a fountain pen that I made for myself. I am glad I did as it writes really smooth and is a blast to write with. Picture 4 are pens 9-11 that I made for my employees as a gift for the past few rough months. Picture 5 and 6 are Seam Rippers that I made for my Mom’s birthday, you never know how many she may need. Hopefully she likes them all.
I have now discovered that turning can be addictive. I have 20 additional pen blanks all glued up ready to turn, just waiting for time to turn them. Though I don’t know what I am going to do with 20 pens, its still fun to make them. Thanks for looking.
