    Who was the pen maker here? Looking for info on how you do it. Just bought a Rockwell lathe for cheap and will probably start turning on pens.

    I'm pretty much self taught. There are a few books on the subject that help, and many wood supply stores will hold classes on pen turning as well. Feel free to pm me or email me too if you need anything. Have fun, it gets addicting!
