First Pen & Pen Press

Here is my first pen ever. Atlas, Ambrosia Maple.

Here is the pen press that my 11 year old and I had made yesterday.

Here is Josh's first pen. Slimline, Bubinga. He made this for his mother to give to her Secret Sister.

Here is Josh working at it.

Hi i love maple, nice pen and i rekon that is a lot better grained than the pic gives out, i see the press a good while back and thought of doing it, does it work well. I use a bit of hard wood i shaped up and put in my pillar drill and use to press works okay but now and then if you don't watch it will mess up. Nice to see you getting your lad into turning, i wanted to be a carpenter from the age of 8, my perants got me full tool kit for christmas when i was 8. My Niece loves to have a go when she comes, made her mum a lace bobbin and was well happy, made a real nice job as well for her first go, a natural. Looks like your lad is going to do some nice work. keep it up..LB.

Thanks for the comments, the pen press works just fine, it took only a few hours to do. The only thing I'm starting to contemplate is that little stopper block first pen was just fine, the second pen it wanted to turn in the peg. Not being perfectly center.

Congratulations on your first pen,well done. You can be proud of yourself for getting your young son involved. I am sure he loved working with his dad. He will remember that pen and the experience of making it forever. Good man Kerux. Mitch
