Default Basic Pen Making Video Series

I'm doing a series of videos on basic pen making in an effort to help my buddy. I know most on here are more advanced then me but I thought I'd share in case it can help someone.

Beginning Pen Making Part 1, Pen Styles, Tools, and Getting Started. Basic Pen Turning explained - YouTube

Hey Chad!!

Nice start!! Your voice and presentation are REALLY good. When you show the pens you are holding in your hand, model by model, they are too far from the camera to be seen with any degree of detail.

But, when you show the "kit", you did a good job of presenting enough detail so most should understand. I look forward to the next ones!!

Ed

Just a heads up.... The woods you chose to recommend for your initial video are nice woods, but are pretty common to cause allergy issues, especially the cocobolo. Just something you might want to think about as you recommend them.
