I have been turning a few pens. Just up to 5 now. The trouble is now that is all I have been doing in the shop.
I need to be doing more common task like building cabinets.

Just turn some pens into drawer and door pulls for the cabinets and you can tell yourself you are working on building cabinets.

Pen turning is a slippery slope. Once you head down it, it is hard to stop the journey. They are fun, easy and marketable. Now build a small chest-cabinet-box to display them in. Have fun, work safely and good luck!
