Since you started turning pens how many do you think that you have made? :thinks:

I've gone for the 11-25 option, but barely, I think I have been trying to run before I can walk tbh and had a go at segmentation, experiments in finishing etc before getting to grips with shape and flow.

The trouble is every time I see the great pictures that you all post with different ideas and techniques , I just want to try them out!!!:rolling:

I'll get there eventually :thumbs:

I have been making pens for about 2 years now, but never kept tab of how many. I was like a rampant rabbit in the first few months, so there will be hundreds of them out there somewhere ... :goesred:

Never kept a record - but turning for a couple of years now - spent a fortune on pen kits, but, don't have many left to count!!! Family, friends etc don't leave them hanging around for long.

Hi Folks, found this forum last week, I've been turning and selling pens for over a couple of years totals would be four figures but I've lost count.

Many many hundreds of hundreds since the eighties, having a hiatus with family health but underway again shortly.

Kind regards Peter.
