Learned how to make pens Saturday afternoon, and made these yesterday for stocking stuffers. This is my first project posted! :)

Nice group of pens. Make them up and they vanish into thin air? Looks like you used a wire burner? Nice looking. But add more pictuers on your projects, and what wood you used. We are all interested. Nice first posting.

These are very nice pens. Isn’t pen makine fun and addicting?
If you would like my advice, your should try making the Cigar Style pen. Produces a much fatter pen and assembles easily. The larger pen shows off more of the beautiful wood. It will require you to buy a new set of bushings as well as a 10mm drill bit and a sleve for your (I can’t remember what they call it…it squares the ends of your pen and cleans out extra glue inside the tube) mandril? Anyway it will be worth the investment.
They will be an excellent contrast to these slimline pens. Then if selling or gift giving, people could take their choice of thin or fat. My simple observations are that people with larger hands (mainly men) prefer the larger pen while most women prefer the slimline pens. Just my 2 cents.
Keep spin’en
