  1. 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...
  2. First and Second Pens

    I bought a lathe on Sunday on a killer sale and turned my very first projects on Tuesday night. I'm rather proud of these pens. The wood lathe is the most fun I've ever had woodworking. I can't believe that I waited this long to get into turning! The top pen is Jatoba, I think. The bottom...
  3. Birdseye Pine? - Tiny Wood Gloat & Project

    Birdseye Pine? - Tiny Wood Gloat & Project Recently I made a trip to see my brother over in Nevada. On his counter was a piece of "scrap" pine that he saved for me because it looked "weird". The scrap was about 9" long, 12" wide and 1" thick. (See the picture) Turns out that what he thought...
  4. Cocobolo Wooden Twist Pen

    Despite having been turning for a number of years now I have never got round to turning a wooden pen, finally a few weeks ago I got round to making this one out of a cocobolo pen blank. The video bellow explains how I made it!
  5. 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...
  6. Stylus

    This is absolutely the best smelling project I have ever done! This is a stylus kit from penn state ind with a coffee n cream blank i picked up at the woodworking show a few months ago. I put a few coats of CA glue on it to keep the beans in place and from chipping out while in use. Based on...

    This bookcase was my first design that incorporated stained glass. The branches are solid solder with a black patina. I used SOSS invisible hinges for the doors.
  11. Big Cleve's Sierra Pen

    A couple of weeks ago, my Godfather gave me a call to ask if I would send him another pen. I had given him a Sierra pen the last time I was home and apparently he has fallen in love with the size of the pen (my godfather is not a small man). This weekend I went down to Lee Valley and bought the...
  12. Gear shift pen (Cocobolo)

    I recently saw this kit in a catalog and I had to get some. The kit is more impressive than the job I did to be honest. I used Cocobolo as the wood, and I feel like I really lucked out with a piece that has a lot of interesting figure. I used a pretty standard friction finish, and that's...
  13. My best pen kit to date

    this is the nicest pen kit I've turned so far. I have to say, I was a bit nervous going in, as I've been saving this burl for a special occasion and didn't want to screw it up. i am happy with the results, it turned out pretty good. I didn't turn tis for anyone specific, more as a fun little...

  16. 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...
  17. Woodworking Skill Share
    I'm really having a hard time with bad ink cartridges from pen kits I've purchased from Rockler and Woodcraft. Anybody else running into this issue and what have you done to help solve it? In less than a week most of the ink cartridges are dead/not working and people are coming back to me...

  19. Woodworking Skill Share
    I am wanting to turn pens other than the cross style refill pen kits. I have everything I need to make slimline and designer pen kits at 7mm. I'd like to make pens that will accept the gel inserts and I know that they are larger than these will accept. What is the name or style of a common kit...
  20. Blogs
    Trying my hand at turning. OK, I got my mini lathe, tools and a bunch of pen turning supplies. Started turning this last weekend to pump out some pens for the people at the office. I laid out my selection of wood and acrylic blanks on my desk and everyone chose their favorite. Of course, no...
