Thumbs up Another from Central PA

Hello all!

Got started in pens on a shopsmith last year, then upgraded to a Rikon Midi.

I love turning and making pens; this forum is a great find! Thanks to whoever came up with and maintains it!

If this pic uploads correctly, I'm attaching a pic of a White Oak cigar (woodcraft kit) from last weekend - my first that wasn't part of the infamous PSI rosewood/slimline starter kit. I don't have a sleeve for my barrel trimmer and freehanding sanding the ends was problematic, so (as with most of my work) it looks GREAT from a distance :) (the pic is from my phone, it looks better in person)

I used the smallest sorby spindlemaster on this (first time trying that tool) - wow what a great chisel! it's just finished with some canning wax burnished in on the lathe; the white oak has a real "antique" look to it and the feel is great.

Anyway, thanks again for having this forum!

JC

JC; Nice looking pen...

The Harrisburg Woodcraft on Eisenhower Blvd (near the turnpike entrance) is having a pen turning event for the troops on November 6th. Gail in the store told me they will be setting up several weeks in advance and have a lathe available.
Drop by, make some pens for service people and enjoy a good time!

Thanks Randy! I'm glad they're doing some good with all the money I spend there! I'll try to make it; had it in my calendar last year, but couldn't make it.
