View Full Version : Beginner Pen Turning

4th Oct 2007, 01:40 AM
This Thread is to help out beginner pen turners and people that would like to start turning. if you have any links or remember old threads post them hear and keep the info coming!

I thought i would start off with a vid so the 'new' pen turner could see what they are getting them selves into lol:D then there is a few links.

i dont think it is appropriate to mention places which sell pen kits though, maybe a new thread with that aim?


ps. keep the info coming.

Stirlo well done for an excellent thread. Maybe Neil, could make this a sticky and keep it at the top of the page for other newbies. Well done mate.
