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.

When your tools are too big to carry up the stairs....

I have been working with my Atlas/Clausing CNC mill quite a bit lately and remembered that  the process of moving the machine into the building was far more compex than anything I will likely do to the machine while it is in the building . 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.
