A few months ago my husband taught me how to use the lathe and I made the burgundy pen. My husband gave me the blue pen, which he also made on the lathe.
It was so fun and easy! You can get the blanks from Rockler and the fun begins! The two that I have are actually made from plastic, which is a little easier to start with because there is really no prep involved. Just put the blanks on the lathe and begin!
These are definitely my favorite pens!
