Default Hey there from Kremmling, Colorado!

Hey all,

I'm Kris, 49, and I've been turning pens as a hobby for about 10 years. I started off with highly figured wood pens sanded to 12,000 grit and finished with friction polish and various fittings. Now I'm advancing to making pens with resin inlays, as well as, hybrids made from resin and burls, then sealed and finished with cyanoacrylate.

I joined IAP to learn new techniques, old techniques, common techniques and to meet others bitten by the woodturning bug.

Thanks!

Welcome, Kris!

Nice to see another CO turner. I split my time between Steamboat and Boulder, so I know Kremmling well!

Welcome Kris, I miss my mountains I was born and raised in Colorado. I use to hunt near Kremmling (Williams Peak) with my brother years ago before he moved away. Loved that area. We had to move to Massachusetts due to a job change three year ago.
