Here are a few pictures of some pens I have turned so far. I have not been on the lathe as much as I wanted to since buying it toward the end of 2005, but that is about to change and I have a lot of spinning projects lined up to begin practicing on.

Enjoy the pictures.

Bob, I was watching the wood working channel today and WoodWorking at Home Episode #8 is about using gouges. This is an excellent video and I picked up alot of tips to help reduce the whoops and catches and stuff. Especially on how to hold and position for a cut to reduce chance of a cut. He didn't get into the evil skew though :)

Nice Job Bob :)

I have a small metal lathe and was thinking about using it to make a pen or two but then I saw what it would cost to make a pen or two and that put the brakes on that one.

Maybe some day I would like to make one like you and Corey have done, real nice pens :)
Maybe this winter when the snow gets me down.. :)
Thanks for posting the pictures ....
Bj :)

I want to see a picture of wood chips all over that lathe my friend. No excuses.

Nice looking pens Bob. Next you need to make a lidded box and then a bowl. :p
