Default Hello from Iowa!

Greetings!

I'm Andrew from Ames, Iowa USA.

I bought a used delta midi wood lathe last fall and have been slowly building up some turning skills. Most recently I've ventured into trying a kitless fountain pen.





This was made with wood turning tools and the cheapest taps and dies available at Harbor Freight. Now that I've proven to myself that I can make a kitless pen it is time to order some more appropriate tools and see if I can do a better job on the next one. Hoping for a new group buy :)

-Andrew
