After all the years I've owned a lathe I finally decided it was time to try my hand at turning a pen.

Fortunately one of the club members lives nearby and is quite good at it. Very good in fact. So we spent most of yesterday afternoon in his shop. It was a good deal easier than I had anticipated.

I know, no shot of the finished product. I made two from kits Ron had for the 'Freedom Pen' program where turners make them and send them to service men and women overseas. I left empty handed but not short on enthusiasm and a new found avenue for my wood turning hobby.

Thank you, Ron!

The finished one on top of the DC inlet looks pretty good to me. :wink:

That's actually one that my friend Ron turned sitting there as an example/guide for form & shape. I wish I'd have taken a photo of the two I did make since I was frankly quite amazed that I was able to turn two of them without having either of them blow up on me.
