Project Information

Well I have definately been bitten by the pen turning bug. I really think that its the instant gratification amd maticulousness of the hobby thay sucked me in.

First pen is buckeye burly, then some randome blank I don't even know what it is, then maple burl, red palm, cocobolo and finally walnut burl.

The last pic is of my 8yr old whole turned an acrylic blank. It was really rewarding to see the excitement after finishing his pen. I coached and he did 90% of the work.
