  1. Wooden fountain pen made with Mahogany, Walnut, and Maple

    This was a gift that I made for a company gift exchange. I glued some strips of Mahogany, Walnut, and Maple into a pen blank, and ordered the fountain pen kit from pennstateind.com. Then I turned the pen blank on my mini lathe. It was a super simple project, but one thing I had to be careful...
  2. Beautiful new Fountain Pen

    I haven't turned a pen in a while, and I've never turned a Fountain pen. So, I bought this kit from Penn State and turned this beautiful Kirinite Green Pearl Fountain pen. This is the Vertex kit and has a magnetic closure and post. You can use ink cartridges or a pump system with it. I finished...
  3. Segmented Pen Blank Leftovers - Fountain Pen

    Jr. Gentlemen's Fountain Pen - Pre Segmented Pen If you have seen my previous fountain pen project with the Segmented Pen then this may be of interest. I made a long blank for the creation of the segmented pen since I knew I would lose a lot of material to the saw kerf. But I was left with...
  4. Segmented Pen Turning - 5 woods represented

    My first attempt at a segmented pen turning… not too shabby. I figure that since I have moved on to higher quality pen kits I would try to make blanks a bit fancier too. Woods used to make the pen blank: Maple, Black Walnut, Mahogany, Yellowheart and African Mahogany. After turning I encased...
  5. First Fountain Pen

    I had a Fountain pen back in school and have been wanting to turn one. I had the Vertex click pen from PSI so I figured I'd get the Vertex Fountain pen kit as it's big brother.

  6. Turned Some Pens recently - Wood and Resin, Hybrid, Fountain Pens

    I got back to turning some pens recently. I've a hard time just sticking to one type of woodworking and am always wanting to try something new (see my Instagram and my projects). In the last couple months, I took a break from turning and took a shot at hand tools, carving, and making a...
  7. Fountain pen

    At the Canberra (Australia) Timber and Working with Wood show I bought a few fountain pen kits and thought I'd give one a try with some Canadian rock maple I had lying around. It's only about the third fountain pen I've made but I'm really happy with the result - and it's now my main writing...
  8. Pens and pencils

    I bought a lathe a couple months ago and started turning. I'm very new to this but picking it up quick. I mainly wanted tot get into selling some pens and pencils to make a little extra money. I've sold 7 so far and working on building up a stock for shows or w/e. It's a lot of fun and gives you...

  14. First Amboyna burl pen

    This is my first attempt at turning amboyna burl, and my first attempt at turning a fountain pen. I was a bit hesitant because it's so expensive, but I think it turned out ok.

  19. 5000 year old Fountain Pen

    I made this fountain pen from ancient bog oak which came from what used to be a sea in the Ukraine. I have a carbon dating certificate that shows the wood is 5000 years old. The wood was very interesting to work with, it was incredibly dense due to being under water for such a long time. The...
  20. Marketplace Classifieds
    I have a customer who has damaged a pen that I built for her. I have contacted the vendor that I purchase my pen kits from and they don't have a spare part that I need to make the repair. I would need to purchase a whole new pen kit just for the one part, kind of bummed about that. The...
