Thanks for accepting me as a member I live in the UK and have been wood turning for 12 years since retirement. I turn many things but have a particular interest in Pen Turning I find it very therapeutic and during these difficult times absorbing and creative.
I have a small workshop with the usual equipment Lathe, Bandsaw. Grinder and many accessories some useful and other not so.
We are well blessed in the u.k for pen turning supplies so there's always something to spend money on.
I retired from many years in sales. I don't try to earn money from Pen Turning and just charge the Kit price or ask for a donation to charity my pleasure is making the Pens.
I look forward to being part of the association and contributing what I can. I have attached a few Photos.

Regards Mike Bird

Welcome from Texas Mike. Sounds like the pen turning hobby is the same there as it is here. There’s never a problem finding something to spend money on. I retired a couple years back and this hobby does the same for me as far as keeping me busy. This is a great site and there’s a lot of information and ideas.
