  1. Me and my son are hooked on pens now

    Well I bought some slimeline pen kits to work on with my 15 year old son. Long story short we are addicted. These things are fun to make and we got to spend some good quality shop time together. I feel like he is going to be a future lumber jock and that is so cool. He really likes to take his...
  2. Highly-Figured Pen Variety

    Here are some more of my pens. I've posted them because of the amazing figure in the grain. Pen 1 - curly maple stained purple Pen 2 - curly maple with a curly walnut band Pen 3 - oak burl The oak is NOT artificially stained by me. It came that way from the tree. It was located near the...

    Two Cigar pens, the bud vase is made from Spalted Maple
  4. My Turned Pens #11-20

    Here are my next 10 pens, turned in the few weeks. I'm getting better at checking my sanding carefully so I don't have to go back to coarser grits. Cast a pair of pine cones…the pen shown is supposed to be metallic blue but I used too much dye so it looks black. Lots of voids but they were not...
  5. First Set of Pens - Lathe Newbie

    Bought a lathe (Delta 46-460) after Christmas and decided to try some turnings. Still getting used the the process, but really loving the short turn-around projects I can create. Nice break from LVDT and LCDTs. While these are nothing special in terms of turnings or pens, they were so much fun...
  6. Overdue Pens

    While "overdue" gifts may be my style…Overdue pens are not some new style you have never heard of…This weekend I finally finished a set of three long overdue pens that friends had requested and although long overdue they turned out pretty nice. The bright red pen is for my friend and neighbor...
  7. Assorted Pens

    Rather than post each pen, I figured I would just post the group shot and a few individuals. These are some of the first pens I made. I found it to be quite relaxing and found my self turning out 2-3 a day for a while. Materials used include Acrylics, Red Cedar, Purpleheart, Hackberry. With...

  11. Old Jail Pen Presentation Boxes

    Just completed my half of a project! Our town has the dubious honor as being the only town north of the Mason-Dixon line to be burned by the Confederate Army during the Civil War (at the time of the Battle of Gettysburg). During the burning, one of the buildings not torched was the jail. The...
  12. A Plethora Of Pens

    My daughter wanted a couple of pens to give to her Summer work term coworkers as a token of appreciation so I got really ambitious (or really crazy) and went into production and turned twenty of them. When you get into the swing of things they can really zip along. :) The woods I used are...
  13. $10 Olive wood bargain

    Found a small cutting board in a local dept store. It was warped but the salesperson marked it down for me. I think I'll get 10 or 12 pens out of it…not bad, I'm thinking
  14. Texas Mesquite Pens

    I made one of these pens back in my 30 days challenge last November, and I think it was the first pen I sold. This is one of the few that I really didn't want to see go, so I decided to turn another one for myself. Funny thing is that I've turned a few projects out of this mesquite, and every...
  15. Pens, because PENS!

    Surfing the projects gallery from time to time has inspired me to try my hand at pen turning. I've done maybe a dozen pens, giving them away as gifts if the finish didn't turn out too questionable. These are the first intentional sit-down 'batch'. which has turned out great. Two are Coast Live...
  16. Now where did I put my....

    I'm sure some of you can relate to this. Started using reading glasses last year and I am constantly looking for a pair. Had some various woods and some time to play in the shop over the weekend so decided to do make a place to put a few pairs, along with a something else that seem to be always...
  17. 100 Year Old Oak Presentation Box and Pens

    Really excited about this last project. Client approached me with some 100 year old oak flooring. It had been given to him by someone whose grandfather had installed it in his house. The client wanted something special made to give back. The rollerball and fountain pens are both made from the...

  19. Surprise Swap- Office Set

    Thanks to GR8HUNTER heading up the band Surprise Swap 2020 has come to an amazing conclusion. The stuff that was received by all looks great and seems to be a huge hit. I had the pleasure of sending my stuff off to a Bill Berklich. A big thanks to him for posting nice reveal pics as well since...
