It is alot of fun to make pens. I started out with the bare minimum. I made my own lathe and mandrel. I received a small set of carbide tool as a gift and I was ready to go.
Sure you can, several different types of clamp can also be used. The pen press makes is alot faster and I have alot more control.
Nice! glad you like it
Thanks I used a pistol grip clamp for a while until I made this one. It is so much easier this way

Thanks and yes you are right sawdust is notorious for finding it's way. I have just accepted that fact and no matter what we do it will always be around. I will periodically remove the toekick drawers clean up.
Thank you , I'm glad you enjoyed the build.
thanks man, I just left the cabinets 4inches from the wall.
Nice! I'm glad it helped you out and yes, definitely make an instructable. This is an awesome community and I'm sure they would love to see your project. I Know I would be interested in seeing your project and ideas
thanks, I build it in stages and over the span of three months. It was kind of tough keeping track but I will try to break it down. The drawer slides were definitely my biggest cost. I spent about $250 on the slides but I still have enough slides left over for future projects. I had some plywood and other items on hand but I believe I spent about $ 200 on plywood. There are other items I am probably forgetting but those were the major expenses
Thank you for the kind words. I'm glad you like it
Nice, I agree you can never have enough srorage. These drawers are filling up fast
sounds like a great adjustable set up, thank you
yes those would work great, thanks
