  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. Cutting Board

    This is my first attempt at an end grain cutting board inspired by Marc Spagnuolo's video. I think it turned out nicely and my wife likes it, so I guess thats all that counts. Its hard maple and mahogany.
  3. 2nd Unique Clock combining Kokomo Glass and stabilized pen blanks

    Yesterday, I finished my first clock which combines colorful Kokomo glass and green stabilized pen blanks from Penn State industries. I posted it previously here. Today, I finished the 2nd clock, but instead of green and white glass, I used brown-white Kokomo glass number 11. I used a yellow...
  4. Strata Blank Bowl from Penn State Industries

    The Strata Bowl Blanks from Penn State Industries are interesting but far from impressive. This small bowl was turned from a medium sized Strata Blank. These blanks are made by glueing a number of different scraps of hardwood to form a stacked block. Some of the scraps were too small to fill...
  5. PSI Bullet Cartridge Pen in Camo

    This pen kit was donated to my show, The Renaissance Woodworker, by Penn State Industries. It is their Bullet Cartridge kit turned with a Lava Bright Acrylic Camoflauge blank. I sanded to 600 grit and then used PSI's One-Step Plastics Polish (also donated by PSI) to finish it to a high shine...

    Hi all; I recently completed the Penn State Industries steel tip darts kit (PKDART2). I also made my first YouTube build video and posted it here (). Let me know what you think!
  7. Unique Clock Design Combining Kokomo Glass and Stabilized Wood Pen Blanks

    I have done several projects using Kokomo glass. It is unique because no two pieces are the same color. In the last few months, I also learned how to make ink pens on the lathe using kits from Penn State Industries. They made a stabilized wood pen blank where they inject a material into the...
  8. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Penn State Industries has a special going on with their utility 4 jaw chuck system. Wood Magazine had given positive reviews of the system. Right now, the chuck comes with a set of jumbo jaws for bowl turners. You can take a look at it here. I have it ordered right now along with a 3/4" 10 tpi...
  9. Woodturning
    I'm am relatively new to turning, and would like to try to turn a pepper mill from this kit. I am also planning to buy a lathe chuck because I would like to turn some bowls. The instructions for this kit say that it "requires" that I buy a pen mandrel and some bushings. Why? If I have a chuck...

    plane wall rack In my small shop space is hard to come buy so I decided to build something to hold my bench plans. This design was in Finewoodworking number 209. My wall wouldn't allow me the space to put the bottom shelf but it was easy enough to subtract it from the plans. The only real...
  11. Wood & Lumber
    Hi I am a furniture designer in New Zealand. I am shortly going to be in the process of converting some of my designs to use timber that is readily available in the United States. I can not seem to find a definitive list of what sizes of timber is commonly available. My current designs use...
