OK, folks, I need to make a pen as a gift. It needs to be *presented* on Monday.
Now, I've never made a pen, so I'm not set up for one. My lathe is a big old honking thing, best suited to large bowls. I have no idea what I need? I can make *one* trip to woodcraft. What should I buy?
Oh, and the pen *has* to be very nice. It's for someone special, who's going away, so I don't want it to look like the first pen I ever made...
