Turned these for a future project I hope to get kickstarted. I have sold a few of them already. People really like the colors.
All Zen kits Gold, Black Titanium & Chrome.
blank colors
Blue = Huckleberry
White = Pear
Green = Eggplant
Brown = Fig

I really like the rollerball they send out in these kits. Great selling feature!!!

Thanks for looking!

I do not make pens and do not have the equipment to make pens

But, including these, for sure, I really like the beauty of these pens you guys make.

I am pretty sure you guys kinda marvel and are surprised (not quite right word) when the wood you start to turn ends up so dang pretty….........genuinely surprised. I know I do on the bigger projects I make, but especially to those of us….....which is probably all of us, love seeing “wood” anywhere and on anything.

You are the pen master! My hat is off to you!
Very nice pens and colors! Funny, I am just now out in the shop and getting ready to make a pen. A retro pen kit from Woodcraft.

C_PLUS – thanks for the comments about the pens. Its nice to hear from you again! I never looked at boards with knots in them until I bought my lathe. Typicaly everyone throws them away because it will not work for their projects. I hunt out the knots because the grain next to a knot is great and it fits most of my smaller turning projects.

Brett – “Pen Master” I thank you for the kind words. I am scared to turn on the lathe now with my HEAD being so big from the complement! I had to look that kit up. I have not turned that one yet. Good clean lines and I like the top. Make sure you post when you get done to show off the great work you do! Be safe turnin!

Thanks sir Roger! I might get close someday to the quality pens you make. But I am sure it will take many moons to get there.

Very nice work and I love the colors and finishes. I highly recommend the Zen pen kits…am using one that I turned using purple figured maple. Have gotten a lot of compliments on it as well.

Greenfire- It is a great kit and is the best I have found to do Decal work on so far. Nice and flat with good length. Take a look at the other Zen projects I have if you want to. Thank you for Looking!
