Topic tags/keywords: pen wood turning

This is a slimline pen turned out of a piece of spalted dogwood. Will sell for $15.00 or trade for other pen kits or pen turning parts and accessories.

Pretty difficult selling/trading pens to woodworkers…

True, I would suggest this then. Make a run of more than a single pen. Every year I make one run of pens, 30-50 usually. Have them all year to sell or trade with just about anyone. Do the same with wine glass bases. These are simple do not require alot of time and sell easily.

If I just had the cash laying around, I’d take 1 million of them, but alas, no cash, just have 2 lathes, lots of scrap wood, and a direct line to PSI :) I make about 20 a month for use as an item in a gift gift bag we give to those who visit our church for the first time. Since I have to order the cross clips, it gets a little spendy, about $5 a pen total cost, but hey, keeps my turning skills sharp, and the pews filled :)

Like others have suggested, Lumber Jocks is where we share what we’re doing, more so than using the site as a storefront. I might suggest Etsy if you’re looking to sell some. Lastly, and this is advice you can take or leave, but if do use Etsy, you’ll want to take the most flattering pictures possible of the item you want to sell. Make a variety as well. Good luck.
