  1. Woodturning
    Hi, I have been turning pens for a few years now, but i have constant issues with the pen retracting when writing. I ordered the first batch from PSI, the pack of 12 trimline kits and all of them did it (what a way to get motivated!) and now, i order from China - Xiamen rhizeng ind. And it does...

  4. Pen and Box

    I just finished these. I made them for my mother-in-law. She was very impressed with the pen and box that I made for my father-in-law for Father's Day, so I decided to make her a set as well. The box is made of claro, the lettering is red oak, and the pen is zebra wood. The pen is just a basic...
  5. Various pens

    These are various pens that I have made. I just started turning about a month ago. I bought a kit to turn on a drill press. I didnt want to go all out and buy a lathe as well because I wanted to make sure I enjoyed turning pens in the first place. It works pretty good, but I will be upgrading to...
  6. First Pen - Cocobolo Slimline

    I am planning on making a nice Majestic pen for my girlfriend's father for Christmas, and turned any pens until today. I decided to order a few Slimline kits to practice on first instead of diving right in to something complex and messing up a $20 kit. I think for my first pen, it turned out...
  7. Maginifer Necklace

    During my last pen order I ordered up something new to try. "Artisan Magnifier Necklaces" I got them a couple of nights ago and decided to turn one tonight. I had a single tube already glued up that did not have a mate for my twist pens so this was perfect. The first pic shows how it came out...
  8. Black Walnut Slimline Pen

    This is my first pen turning project. I used a black walnut pen blank that I had been saving for a while. The kit is a Woodcraft "Slim Style" Platinum. I didn't catch any photos during the build, but I plan to do that on the next one. Finish is beeswax melted in while spinning on the lathe...
  9. two, two-tone platinum pens

    Two Tone Bamboo Modified Slimline Actually a fast growing grass, but as tough as maple, bamboo is a very sustainable product. This design is actually a modification to the standard slimline kit. Rather than include the narrow centerband, instead I used an asymmetrical centerband of natural...
  10. Slim line Pen

    Was cleaning the shop and the lathe called out to me. Had some blanks made up sitting near by that my I had prepared for my wife and one of her friends to turn. So here it is. You all will have to guess the wood. I have forgotten what the blank was. It was finished with Shellawax and Mylands...
  11. First pens!

    First pens I've ever made. As well as the first use for my new general maxi vs+ lathe! First is just a regular slimline done in maple, the second is a greek point slimline done in zebra wood. sanded to 12000 grit using the micro mesh pads I got and finished them in polyurethane then waxed. Will...
  12. Pens for a Craft Show

    Here's a group of pens that I made for a craft show last week. All are either Slimline or European style. When I have all of them together like this, I can really tell that I've been improving. The woods used are marblewood (pretty sure), maple, padauk, african blackwood, oak, and a few...
  13. 7MM Pens

    Evening All, Tomorrow evening is an anniversary dinner for the woodturning group I joined this past year.They are asking folks to not only bring food but also items that they make. It is open to the whole family so I am looking forward to taking my wife and daughter and having them see some of...
  14. 1st Pen

    This is my first pen turned on a lathe. Its a slimline 24ct gold from Penn State. Its made from Epay I got from Blackwater River Tools in Pensacola FL.
  15. Redgum Pen

    This a pen I made from the same Redgum I used in the Pool Cue Joint Protectors. Its a gold slimline finished with CA glue.
  16. First Pen

    I'm deeply concerned that making this was so easy and enjoyable, that I might be looking at the beginning of an expensive addiction. My son has already asked for a pen made from deer antler. But that's a post for the future. This pen was a slimline made with Kingwood, both purchased through...
  17. A Special Request Pen

    It seems that my mom is beginning to develop arthritis and it is getting harder for her to write. She mentioned that she is trying to locate a pen that is thick enough to be comfortable. Well since I am heading to see her soon I thought I would try turning one for her. I pulled a random blank I...
  18. Slimline pen

    Long story short, my school is having an auction to raise money for Terry Fox Cancer Research tomorrow evening. I wanted to contribute something, so I made a pen from a cocobolo rosewood blank. It is a slimline pen with chrome hardware finished up with shellawax friction polish. I believe it...
  19. A few pens

    I just knew I'd like turning pens, so I got myself a starter kit last summer. I glued up the tubes in the blanks and paired up the blanks as best I could for matching grain… a fool's errand with the random set they provided. Looks and works a bit like mahogany, I'm not positive but it could be...
  20. Surgeon's pen

    Wow. Where to begin with this post…. First, I guess I should explain my lack of engagement on LJs for the past 6 weeks. On May 18th, while participating in an obstacle-course-style 5K run , my wife tumbled awkwardly and broke her neck. That's not hyperbole or an exaggeration, she literally...
