Decided to take a break from mid terms and make a pen to clear my head.

Hope you did well on your midterms. Your pen looks great, the lathe can be very therapeutic from life’s up and downs.
You have to concentrate on the task at hand and the rest of the world fades away. When your finished you have a beautiful pen. Thanks for inspiring

Nice looking pen MR...

Shame that now days, kids are born with button pushing fingers rather than pen.

Thanks guys I appreciate it!! Little black duck I agree it’s a shame. I look back and wish I would have gone out to my dads shop and learned from him instead of playing games or being on a computer… much more difficult to teach myself then it would have been to learn first hand.

Alas, I have built up a fair colllection of high end pens (fountains and rollerballs)...

Unfortunately the the pleasure in making them far outweighs their demand… which does not replenish the piggy bank… and you can only give so many away as presents…
