    Amboyna kitless

    G'day I spent most of today making this pen for myself. It is stabilised amboyna with kirinite rioja finials, section and sleeves. Natural polish and a Jowo #6 medium nib. This was a fun project, inspired by some of the kitless makers around the world. Pics are a bit cruddy, was getting dark...

    Another cocobolo kitless

    G'day! A customer requested a pen made similar to my last cocobolo kitless, although he suffers from arthritis and needed a specific width and length. I fully sleeved the timber this time, to improve the structural integrity of the cross cut timber, but also to ensure that the nib doesn't dry...

    'Emerald rapids' kitless

    G'day! Made this pen today from a few blanks made by David Turner in Australia. You can find him on Facebook as DT blanks. He gets great colour separation and swirls. Nothing outlandish about my pen, very straight forward design, Jowo #6 b nib, without engraving which I love. Thanks for looking

    Cross cut Cocobolo Kitless

    G'day! Well, after taking inspiration from a few outstanding turners around the globe, I have made a timber kitless which I am absolutely proud of. The only thing I need to improve on is making the threads triple start, which I am soon sorting. Resin sleeves and section, jowo 1.1 stub nib, bees...

    Curly cottonwood Kitless

    G'day! A good chunk of today was spent on this pen. Stabilised and dyed curly cottonwood done by a friend over here in the Aussie land. I worked out how to sleeve the timber, I used ebonite as it cuts beautiful threads. Ebonite section and Jowo #6 f nib. 20 coats of medium CA to get a nice depth...

    Minerva pebble beach segmented kitless

    G'day! Well, what started off as a random idea, finally worked out today after many frustrating attempts. The nib section gave me grief! This is the 4th one made for this pen, and it's not exactly how I wanted it to look but nonetheless I'm fairly happy. The thin spacers between the pebble and...

    Ebonite kitless pen #6

    G'day! Me again with another pen with no pre fabricated parts other than the nib, feed and housing. This process is so much fun and also so frustrating. The grip section is the hardest part to make. I ruined 2 making this pen. There is zero room for error, which I kinda like. Anyway, enough...

    First "hybrid" custom pen

    I have been pen turning for over ten years now but only making kitless pens for over a year, and always from resin rods. I work on a wood lathe and not a metal lathe so I I was concerned if I could make a sleeve for a cap with a proper fit or if I would have some other unforeseen issues (I did...

    My First Custom/Kitless Pen

    This was my second attempt and it finally worked out. The blank was Nebula from LumberJim on etsy. The section piece was by far the hardest part. Very fine tolerances for the skinner Jowo no. 5 nib.

    How to get space behind threads on kitless pens

    Friends, I find myself struggling to add space behind the body’s threads where it will work with a cap. (see attached images) Naturally, it’s not difficult for me to simply turn down extra material behind the threads, but when I go to put the cap on, the cap wants to stop twisting as it...

    Finished this guy up yesterday

    Kindly ignore the dirty threads. I still need to wipe it down. But this was a pen that I started and finished yesterday afternoon. This one marks my second completed kitless pen, and while still not perfect, proved to be yet another learning experience. I accidentally snapped the threads of...

    Introduction Post: Michael/Turning Point Pen Co.

    Hi! I'm Michael, I was introduced to turning (and pen making) when I was in Middle School back in 2005. I found a passion in making these rectangular materials into shiny cylindrical objects, and kept turning as a hobby through high school and college. The turning point for me was after...
