I learned something new last week…

After months of watching videos on wood turning and pen turning, I turned my first pen last week:


Mesquite with “gold” hardware. Neither is my first choice of color but it’s what was provided in the class.  There are a couple of things I’m not entirely satisfied with on this one but for a first effort I’m happy with the result.

I hope to have the time to cut some blanks out of scrap 2×4 in my garage and do some practice turning and drilling this weekend.
