    Semiautomatic pen

    Since I was told pictures are always welcome here's this one. One of the young guys at work is going to the US Marines and I figured a rifle pen just fits. I hope it serves him well and that he likes it. I enjoyed the color combo and rhino plastic is a favorite of mine besides wood. Added some...

    It Takes A Special Reason

    Monday my youngest got to ring the bell following his cancer treatments (again). This was his second go round with Langerhan‘s Cell Histiocytosis. The boy loves orange and dragons. So, I made him a Dragon pen (PSI) with an Orange Juma blank. I purchased both from exotic blanks. Dawn and Ed have...

    Honduras rosewood burl

    Purchased a few blanks from a fellow turner up north of this stunningly beautiful timber. Decided to go all out and put it on a PSI Magestic. It is my absolute favourite pen that I have ever made.

    Pen press?

    I was looking at the Woodcraft and PSI catalogues. There is a $30 difference with WC being the most expensive. I did use the WC press when I took a class earlier this year. I wanted to get the input from the forum members. I do have some $$$ that I could spend but want to get the most bang...

    First time trying this wood, mostly due to how expensive it is and I really didn't want to have an expensive mess up. This was donated to my father-in-law, who turns bowls, by a gentleman who is allergic to the wood. I was more than happy to take it and give it a try. The wood was very dry and...

    The Valyrian

    As a fan of GOT, I really wanted to make one of these Knights Armor pens using Chad Schimmel's very cool blanks! Chad does a great job and I think they match up really well. This one sold very quickly and I wasn't even planning to sell it! I guess there are a lot of fans of the Game of Thrones...

    Shipping "war"

    Not a real war. More a comparison between suppliers shipping. I submitted an order with PSI and another with Wooturningz. Both done on January 30. Orders placed seconds apart. At 8am today I received an e mail from PSI confirming the order was shipped today. At 10 am today I received an e mail...

    New Victorian from PSI

    This is the new Pewter Victorian kit from PSI. At first I was not to sure about the kit but when I examined the parts before turning I was shocked at how small the tubes were and was thinking this is not going to look good at all. Well, after I turned one of my handmade blanks and put this pen...

    Better mechanisms?

    Up to now I've only been making woodturningz pen kits (with a few psi pens as well) and I have 6 cigar pens in front of me, each with a bad mechanism. And the slimline kits don't last either. So I have a few questions: 1.) is there a place I can buy quality mechanisms to use in a woodturningz...

    Rate My Pens

    I am a new pen turner, and these are my first 11 pens. I know they're nothing out of the ordinary, but I wanted to get some input of what I could do better. also, what do think they're worth, like in a market environment. I am only 15, so go easy

    video: drilling on the lathe (another one)

    I know this has been done, (and probably done better), but I was bored today and decided to try making a video. Drilling an Amboyna burl blank on my Jet mini with a PSI collet chuck.
