Default Hello from Northern California

Hello everyone,

My name is Matthew Morse, in from the small town Paradise, CA. I have been tuning pens for a short time. I have been tuning in total for about 2 years, I have had a woodworking background for a while. I took woodshop all 4 years in high school. I am open to any help you may have or want to share, thanks in advance

Welcome to the club, from So. Cal.

If you learn from reading, I'd recommend the The Pen Turner's Bible: The Art of Creating Custom Pens https://www.amazon.com/Pen-Turners-B...8621782&sr=8-1

It helped up my skills very quickly. It will also make you dream of more tools and jigs

Welcome Matthew, from Sydney Australia.
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?
