Some Military Inlay Pens

Well, I actually turned a few pens today. Actually five. First time I've used the lathe in 6-8 months. I was fun to turn again even though I reaffirmed my beginner status!!! Several months ago, I purchased several military inlay kits from Wood-n-Whimsies. I really like their stuff and their customer service is top notch. And since they are actually local to me, I have stopped in on many occasions and was provided great service and hands-on training. Tim's a great instructor. After watching their YouTube video today on turning inlays several times, I decided to give it a go.

I had actually been wanting to turn a pen for a buddy who I served with that retired as a E-7 First Sergeant this past year,. I've also been wanting to turn a pen for a good friend that's a Chief Master Sergeant and the current career field manager for my old AFSC (MOS). She's a great lady who I told back when we were SSgt's together that she'd be a Chief someday.

I figured since I wanted to turn these pens, I'd also turn one for my brother who retired from the USAF several years ago as well as my BIL who was a Marine (I don't hold it against him) during Desert Storm.

The 5th pen I made is for myself because I wanted it I thought it'd be nice to have a USAF pen on my desk at work, though I doubt I'll use it much.

Very nice work. I think that you are well past beginner status. I'll need to check out Wood-n-Whimsies. I think that they may have been at SWAT this year.

We're all entitled to at least one bad decision.
