Welcome to both of you! Should have bought a lathe a long time ago??? My father said hindsight is 20/20. Those pens are awesome! Fit and finish are excellent! Thanks for the great story and the photos. I have an 11 yo grandson who has made some pens. Have some pens to build so I can get him to help.

Thank you everyone for the warm welcome! We definitely caught the turning bug, so much so that my daughter came home last night with her first commission to turn a pencil for one of her classmates. I really love how much information and knowledge y'all have gathered in this forum (was poking around the "Library" most of the evening) and I'm excited to see where this journey takes us.

Next up, silicone molds and casting blanks.

Great to see another young person involved in wood craft and pen tuning.
For me we as a group need to do a better job encouraging our your people n something other than a hand help electronic device.

Good job on the pen's by the way.

Tough to beat quality father/daughter time. Those are some of my best memories.

Welcome to the IAP, from Scotland!

Greetings from Clyde, TX (near Abilene). Great work on your daughter's part for her first pens. Get to know the Woodcraft guys in Hurst. Woodcraft and Rocklers have great classes especially for new turners.

Welcome Sean, and your Daughter. from Sydney Australia.
Great Display of your Talent, Excellent Finishes.
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?
