I'm a surgical assistant by trade. I have just returned to turning of any type in the last few months. I learned to turn back when high schools still taught woodworking as a class. I enjoy turning pens and seeing what some of the mystery wood I have bought ends up looking like when it is finished. I have had the privilege of being able to selling a few of my pens here and there, mostly to friends and co-workers. I'm now starting to experiment with segmenting some of my pens and turning some stabilized wood that a friend stabilizes for me (wife would kill me if I went out and bought a vacuum chamber or a pressure pot anytime soon).

Welcome from just down the road (so to speak) in Wichita Falls. This is a great place to learn. There is a very active woodturning club in Lubbock...The South Plains Woodturners. www.southplainswoodturners.org They meet the 3rd Saturday of each month and have zoom available for the meetings. Check them out.
Do a good turn daily!
Don

Hi Ron,

Welcome from California. I can't wait to see some of your segmented pens.
This is one of the first one I made(Southwest). The bolt action I was playing around on a piece that I was asked to make, scrap from a chess board I’m making.

Very nice work. Have the pressure pot delivered to work, I mean you wouldn’t want to inconvenience the good lady by her having to wait in for it would you👍🤫
