    For the pen turners

    This pen turning hobby is an addiction that is difficult to kick. You bowl turners can relate I'm sure.

    Here's a few of my latest pens!

    Fat Cigar in White Corian & Titanium Gold. Would this make a nice wedding pen for signing the marriage licence?

    It feels great to sell a pen,
    It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

    If your presence doesn't make an impact;
    Your absence won't make a difference!

    I like them all, but the stands are pretty good as well.
    Best regards,

    Yeah, I'd say you're hooked. Great-looking batch of pens, Mack.

    Beautiful pens Mack. You are too much competition, guess I'll stick to exploding bowls.

    Mack,
    Nice pens... I make a few, but am beginning to cut back as they don't sell well right now here in TN...

    I particularly like the Pacifica Fisher's of Men... haven't made that particular kit, but have done a number of the Tapa Pacifica and the Pacifica Petroglyphs.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.

    I'm not addicted yet but looking at your pens is maybe going to push me to do more.
