Pen turning is an awesome way to get into woodturning. Today I’ll show you how to make a pen on the lathe. It was the first time I’ve ever turned a pen and I didn’t have a pen vise, reamer, barrel trimmer, or pen press. See how I did it with just the basics. This is Day 4 of my 6 Days of Beginner Woodturning Projects. If you’ve wanted to add lathe work into your woodworking this is a great place to start. I’ll share some basics and what I learned turning each project.
