I have purchased some kits and blanks at Good selection and quick shiping. Also check Woodcraft and Rockler. I also bought some slimline kits in bulk on ebay. The majority of items were purchased locally in Reno, NV at The Woodworking Source

I don’t know that you will find drastic price differences between retailers. I boought various kits and blanks to start off with as I learn to turn…

Have fun and be sure to post some pictures.

Henry, all vendors selling pen kits and pen turning supplies give a quantity discount. Berea Hardwoods and Penn State Industries have many pen kit resellers. Craft Supplies also sells kits & supplies but has no resellers.
Woodturningz, is a reseller of PSI kits and supplies like Wood-N-Whimsies sell even less expensive line of pen kits too.
Depending upon pen kits you like to make determines best vendor.

I like this site because like their kits, Indroductory products, quantity discounts, and crafter program, and specials. Berea’s resellers more popular to a lot folks, but have not dealt with them.

I have bought kits and supplies from these vendors and some of their resellers if need more see links page at

Might try looking and hanging out at pen turners org or IAP for tips tricks and technquies.
