Default Hello from Virginia

Hi everyone. My name is Steve and I have just started turning Pens about on month ago. Took a lathe class, to learn how to use the lathe, at a local woodcraft store and haven't looked back. I have only turned around 10 pens so far, but I love learning and I'm having fun. Ordered my first "tube-in" silicone blank and some polyester Resin to make my own blanks. Can't wait to turn some more and be creative and learn from everyone. Attached are a few of the one's I have created and I'm very proud of, for first time making them. Hope you enjoy my pics. segmented-dowel-pen-2-.jpg

Welcome to the IAP, great work on the pens shown!
The proper way to use a stress ball is to throw it at the last person that annoyed you!
