Pretty. I love fancy pens, your guy has some serious skills.
AND HE KNITS
Oh my gosh! I am a pen-aholic--these are awesome! How do you get started making pens?? I never thought of making my own.
Well he has a metal lathe, it isn't as friendly as a wood one, but he makes it work. He uses a drill press and makes the center hole then starts spinning it on the lathe. He begins cutting into the wood, I don't see him for a few hours and bam a pen is born lol. The metal pieces and guts come from a store bought pen kit.
He is a pen-aholic as well. He collects fountain pens. The next one he is making is a fountain.
