I pretty new to pen turnin(a few months) and I love it. September of last year I lost my right index finger, and severely damaged the middle in a workplace accident. I needed something to take my mind off of the accident, and I found pen turning. I jumped in with both feet and never looked back. I pour my own resin blanks, and stabilize some burls and such, and even got a laser engraver to engrave my wood pens. Every time I look up new information about pen turning, I end up here. So I decided this was the place for me. I'll add a few pics of some of my pens. I hope to learn from you all that have been doing this awhile.
