Hello you all. I am Dale and I live in Norwood.
I have just started making pens. It is quite a hobby, If I was rich I would make them all day long.
Ive have made my 8th pen. So you can see how new I am.
What are the things a person should know about joining the Southwest MO club? What are if they are the cost of joining?
I see that you are meeting in Springfield in Sept.

Dale, Welcome to the IAP and to the Missouri Chapter as well. There are no fees, or anything that will empty your pockets except for the pen turning addiction. Look under the Chapters forum and you can find us. By the way Freddie, our leader< is a pastor as well so you two have a ton in common. Welcome again.

Hello Dale. I am not from MO but I do want to greet you!

I am including a link to a PDF file that goes over many aspects of pen turning from finish - to pens - to tools - to methods etc. It is not in detail but a good overview for pen turning. Hope it helps.

Also included below is a link to a new post that gives some information that people wished they had known earlier in pen turning. Some good information by those that make pens.

I see you found us! Great. If you want to be added to our email mailing list for the local chapter you can send me a private message with your email address and I will add you to my list. That way you will get all the updates about the upcoming meeting in September. By-the-way, there is a little wood shop in Springfield called "The Wood Gallery" that has pen parts and some pen blanks. It is on East Sunshine in the Southen Hills strip mall (behind Burger King) about 4-5 blocks west of Highway 65. Welcome!
