Making pens

There are lots of people making pens in Australia.
I took up pen making as a hobby.

Initially costs are fairly high however the pleasure I get is worth it.

I sell a few every now and then and that pays for more kits and exotic timbers used for the blanks.

My GPW mini lathe has arrived.
Now set up on a table with a plywood surface.
Lathe weighs in at 35Kg so help is required to set it up.
