Smile Greetings from Idaho

I'm a retired special education teacher, currently doing curriculum development consulting from a home office. Before I was a teacher, I was a professional musician (percussionist) and I spend a good bit of time in my shop building cajons (wooden hand drums). I decided to buy a lathe and thought that pen turning would be a good way to develop fine motor skill for other turning projects.

I'm fascinated by the process of putting a celtic knot into a pen turning and hope to do some experimenting with that.

I had heard from a vendor that there was a Pen Turning Club in Idaho Falls, but have not been able to find any further information about that. If anyone knows a contact person for Eastern Idaho, please let me know.

Happy Turning!
