Default In Search Of.....

I started turning pens a couple of years ago but I've never really used this forum...but I think I'm going to start.

Recently I saw a picture of a pen done in LEATHER and I'm trying to figure out who makes them. VERY INTERESTED!

Welcome. I have some leather that needs to be used for a pen. Search the library for leather.

Welcome, Frank. The pen in your picture isn't totally turned. They probably made a blank out of some scrap wood and turned it to a diameter smaller than what was needed for the kit. The leather, which looks like top grain or upholstery leather, was glued to the blank, trimmed and then hand-stitched with what looks to me to be waxed thread. Rather than gluing the leather with CA, I would probably use a contact cement.

Welcome Frank, 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?
