Handman Pens or Pen Turning
 
Did anyone give a thought to making PENS? or what is called PEN turning?

After all, when you keep up your RV log Book up to date. You'll need a good pen to keep your Motorhome logs and notes.

As a hobby, you make or turn a wooden PEN Ballpoint and others I'm sure.

I did a search and found nothing.
A link and I'm sure there are other companies out there that do this. I've just started looking into it for myself any suggestions?

I've made quite a few. It's another hobby with great intentions to make money.....lol. There are so many possibilities. I've made pens out of gym floor (for alumni, etc.), deer antler, printed sheets for scrabble lover, Bethlehem olive tree, etc.
You can buy loads of corian blanks and make pens/pencils sets that match counters. It's very fun and I'd be glad to help if you have any questions.

With the wooden pens you use super glue as the finish. It's very touch and go but eventually you find what works for you. Just talking about it makes me want to clean out the workshop and make a few Christmas gifts.
