Be careful. These pens get addictive!! I just got my first lathe back in Dec and I have so many pen orders, I dont seem to get time to do much else, lol. Its fun though!! Thats why I started selling them, to support my habit!!

Nice pen!!

Very nice pen. What wood did you use. Pen making is addiction. I'm pen addict.

Thanks, it really turned out nice.


The wood I used was Lignum vitae, it finished real nice. I will defiantly be using that more.

Which pens do you guys people like the best? The one in the pic is a Wall Street 2?

I can see where this will be addicting......

My favorite pens to turn are the Cigar pens. They sell well too.

Since you said Wall Street, that tells me you got your kit at Woodcraft. Check out Berea Hardwoods. Thats where woodcraft gets them from and there is a huge markup on some of them. Woodcraft just had a 20% off sale on all pen kits over the weekend. Even factoring in shipping cost through Berea, it was still cheaper than buying from Woodcraft even when they have a sale.
