Default Hello from Kansas City, MO

I am very, very new to woodturning. I've been tossing around the idea for a few months. I've been interested in woodturning since my high school woodworking class 25 years ago. I signed up for a local pen making course last Sunday and decided to pull the trigger on buying all the stuff I need to get started. I just sold my house and am in an interim apartment until next spring/summer, so a perfect time to start woodworking. My lathe arrived yesterday and I made, and messed up my first pen from start to finish. I'm looking to make this a hobby. I've been a fan of fountain pens for years, so there is a lot of crossover, and googling "best fountain pen kits" is what brought me here. So any advice on good quality fountain pen kits is very welcome.

I'm pretty sure it was bocote. I bought a 5lb grab bag of unlabelled blanks, so I'm not totally sure.
