Default My Third and Fourth Pen Turns

after I got in from work decided to turn a couple of Pens, the gear shift for my Grandson and the bolt action for my Son, really enjoyed the quite time in the shop like I call it Home Alone, I have a lot to learn this is a lot different that metal work on the lathe, it more fun and a heck of a lot faster, let's all have a blessed week.

Well done, like the finish and camo pen.

Nice job. I like the kit choices. Bolt & Gear are great pens...looking good with those blanks. And to Home Alone...It never gets lonely at the lathe.

Current set up:
a pair of Jet 1015VS
Jet 1221VS
MidAmericaPool professional pool cue repair lathe

Nice Pens Joe,
Excellent Blanks Well Turned, Fitted and Finished.
Good Choice of Hardware.
Turn that special piece of Timber you have been keeping.
Enjoy it for its true beauty.
Why leave it for others to enjoy without you?
