Here are some pics of pens I’ve turned lately and more to come. I find pen turning enjoyable and I can make money if only I would start doing it. I’m turning these pens on two different lathes, one a Sears 12 inch (which is very noisy and the other a Central Machinery 8 by 12 with virable speed and a quiet and sweet turning lathe, both of these lathes were given to me by my cool brother Julio in Georgia, my thanks to him.I’m thinking of putting some of my pens on in the near future. For now I’ll just keep cranking out the pens when I find the time.

You have been busy! Are you dizzy yet from the the turning? ha ha

I really like the all black pen, very spec-ops looking.

Beautiful pens. Let us know how that works on esty. I have the same problem, I love to make pens (it’s an addiction) but I usually end up giving most of them to family and friends. It would be nice to just break even so I’d have a way to support my habit.
