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.
Here are the happy participants showing off their pens:
