Default G'day ;-) (another Australian)

Hi all, greetings from Melbourne (ish) Australia, I've recently decided to look into pen making as a new creative hobby/possible side business after being given a box of pen kits, and subsequently buying a wood lathe to complement my (quite small) metal lathes...

So I've fallen down the rabbit hole fairly fast, and have a few feeds/nibs incoming to start making kitless fountain pens from alumilite resin and various woods..

Hopefully in the next few weeks I'll have some results, in the meantime I just drool at other people's :-)

All the best, and happy new year

G'Day and Welcome Tom, From just up the Track a bit,
In Sydney.
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?

Hiya Tom, welcome from Wales.

I'm guessing your smallish metal lathes are for watchmaking?
With skills like that, you'll have no probs churning out some pretty special pens in the very near future...
