I turned pens for Christmas presents this year. This one is Maple. I liked it, so I put a ring on it.

You basically get 4 tries to sucessfully turn the ring if you start with that end. Curve the outside of the ring first, and if you carve the ring stops next, you have more space to insert the undercut tool. Undercut using a pick, and when it breaks free, sand the underside. Cut and smooth the area under the ring. Finish the pen.

I like it too, that’s a nice spin on wood turned pens :)
