    Smile little old me

    Hello everyone,

    Recently Phil suggested I'd register here, sonhere I am.
    My name is Tom Burger and I live in the Netherlands. 35 years old. In a steady relationship for 15 years and proud fatherbof our 4 year opd daughter.
    I have started turning pens about two years ago, though I have been turning for about 14 years now.
    Always looking to challenge myself with new techniques and materials.

    Current quest for me is to learn kittles pen turning, so any help, tips, tutorial (videos) are very welcome.

    I hope to learn a lot from you all,
    Best regards,
    Tom

    Hello Tom. Welcome from the USA. Be sure to check the tutorials section.
    You know your old when your sweetie says "lets go upstairs and make love" and you reply "honey, I can't do both."

    Thanks everyone

    This is one of my most recent pens, I also do a lot of wooden pens and I tried ebonite recently, hate the smell but I love working with it
