Handmade Wooden Pens

 Can I tell you just a bit about my hobby?

Pens are a delight to make.  "Bullet Pens" are very popular among hunters and gun enthusiasts.  I also enjoy twist pens, click pens and fountain pens.  It is a thrill to take a rectangular shaped piece of rough "firewood" and turn it on a lathe.  Seeing the grain of the wood clarify into a beautiful example of the nature of the wood can be most satisfying as you can see in this photo:
