I just recently got into woodturning, more specifically, pen turning and I am hooked. I made my first pen back in December as a gift and got a lot of positive response from family and clients. I started making them as gifts but then people wanted to buy them, so I started selling them. These three are called Majestic Jrs. I used three different burls. Bimble box, maple, and black cherry. These 3 were Fathers Day gifts for one of my best clients. I was shocked when she told me she wanted three. I have been selling anywhere from 2 to 10 pens a week. The demand is crazy. I do about 6 different types and this particular model is my #2 best seller.
