Pen Turning Workshop

 

The Pen Turning Workshop held on 13-April-2014 was a great success. Participants spent a few minutes practicing shaping wood on a lathe using a chisel. Once feeling comfortable with their skills, each person moved on to shaping rectangular pieces of wood and into pen-shaped pieces. These pieces were assembled with the mechanical parts of a pen. The finished products from this workshop are below. Not only do they look great, the makers can be proud showing off their woodworking prowess.

I will share some of the photos (as soon as I can find them) but for now wanted to get this story down while I was thinking of it.

budget has caused us to dip into our savings over the last few years.
Unfortunately, we are missing more than we are hitting and our
reserves are running CRITICALLY LOW.

Afinia H-Series Printer Review

AFINIA H-SERIES 3D PRINTER REVIEW

 

As much as I love building machines and tinkering with stuff, sometimes it's worth it to me to buy a full working product. I wanted a 3D printer but wasn't really satisfied with the performance of self built units that I've seen around.
