Wooden Pens and Other Small Turning Projects

Introduction: Wooden Pens and Other Small Turning Projects

these are some small turning projects I've done. there are some clocks, a finial, a plumb-bob, a bottle stopper, a mallet, a goblet, some tops, and some pens. They are done on a 24 by 12 inch jet midi lathe, using wood and kits mostly from wood craft. to do the finial i used a great video series on fine woodworking. you can see it here

    i would probably sell the smaller ones for about 20$-30$ depending on the venue and type of wood used in the pen. and the internals are not wood.

    Very nice things.

    If you put in the image a penny, a hand or a finger aside the object, we could have an idea of the size.
