Hand Turned Pens

If you found yourself wondering what we filled these bags with, I can tell you now! My husband made hand turned pens for many of the adults on our Christmas list. We chose various woods depending on what we thought people would like.

He had never turned wood before but purchased an old 1980s Craftsman lathe off of Craigslist last winter. For his birthday, I gave him the makings for a mechanical pencil and that was his first attempt at hand turning. He was hooked and decided to try these.

This one was finished after the official photo shoot because the first pen blank broke.

And this one was a surprise made for me. I found it in my stocking!
