Hello I am Doug from Montreal Canada and I am new to turning pens. I actually turned my first 3 Slim lines this week with mixed results using CA as the finish so I am looking forward to some advice and also if there are any other Canadian members where in Canada is the best place I can get supplies.
I am a member of a local woodturners club and at our weekly meeting someone bought in a pen he was in the process of completing and when I asked some questions he referred me to the IAP as his best resource. So far it looks great.

Take care Doug

Hey Doug,
Welcome. My goto is William Wood-Write aka penblanks.ca. They’re in Ontario they are great. You can also go to Lee Valley in Laval. And Langevin Forest on Pie-IX in Montreal North. I usually buy from William Wood-Write because they have the biggest selection and fast shipping.
And yup, the IAP is the best resource for info and advice.

Welcome from Texas, Doug. Be sure to keep at least one or two of your first pens to look back on a few years from now.

Welcome aboard Doug. I’m just a couple hours east of you, near Brockville.

The best source is William WoodWrite. He has the best selection in Canada.
A couple of other options would be Lee Valley or Woodchuckers in Toronto.
There’s another company, not coming into my mind, that also makes custom pen blanks.

Reach out if you have any questions.
