I spent some time last Christmas break learning my lathe, and decided to make several pens and wine stoppers. I’ve later done pens for friends, gifts, etc. I’ve also turned some darts as well. These are lots of fun, easy, and great to get my boys into the shop! I done some out of acrylic, and also a hedgewood that friend provided to me.

One of the pens I did out of a deer antler as well.

My wife and I have looked at your Beautiful work, you have a GR8 talent. You do wonderful work. I exspecially liked the darts. Did you get the kits from PSI? Did they come with weights to help get them to regulation wghts? Yes I love playing darts. I have thought about getting the dart kit, but I am nervious about doing them do to the wght issue. I love turning, I also do pens, and love doing it. It is a great stress reliever. Once again you do beautiful work. Keep up the GR8 turning…

Thank you. I’ve gotten pen kits from Rockler and PSI mostly. The dart kit did come with weights to insert… but you need to put the correct amount of weight in first before you “seal” it up. So, kind of hard to get it to the weight you want right away.

Yuo got some nice work there. I have never thought about turning darts before I might have to give it a try.
