Hello from TX

I am in a city outside of Fort Worth, TX. I am a school teacher and coach and spend a little bit of time in the garage/shop on my lathe when I can. I have been turning pens/calls for less than a year and have mainly used them as gifts so far but have sold a few as well...the wife said I better sell some or stop spending money on them, easy choice there!

Anyway, I'm new and am enjoying seeing some of the tricks of the trade on this forum and look forward to learning and trying some of the hints out. thanks!

Mason

Welcome to the forum. This is a great site with really helpful people.
I too find turning pens enjoyable and I love look on someone's face when they receive one as a gift.

Some beautiful work there Steve! I have to ask...how do you work with pine cone? I have heard of it a few times, but never any good description of how to work with it.
