I bought a lathe but havent had much time to use it with. Here are a few pens i did and i hope that i get some more time to play with it now that I got my house. There is so much to do on it so all my woodworking has been put on hold. I hope to start posting more often. There is a spalted maple cedar and cherry. For now im just making slim line pens until i get a better hang of them. Any suggestions id be happy to hear.

Great job on your first pens. Be sure to keep at least one of these and put it away in a safe place then look back at that pen after a year or so. You’ll be amazed how much you progress and learn different technics along the way. You can really get creative with slimline pens, check out a couple of my projects with slimlines:
Practice with scrap wood and what I learned along the way is if a blank doesn’t turn out just right I turn it all the way down to the tube, clean it off and use it again. Have fun, relax with the tools and let your imagination take hold!
