    Well done Paddy, I have a pen with that blank like that covering it. And I still can’t sell it.

    I like the combo, and from what I’ve seen of your work I’m surprised it hasn’t sold

    I don't want to buy it but just out of interest what price would that sell for?

    Personally I would be looking for 35 - 45 region but never having sold a pen in my life I may be well off the mark.

    I hope to start my pen turning journey next week and put what Neil showed me to good use. The first dozen or so are for Christmas presents (that includes the neighbours cat and dog) and I will have a good look at what prices are. Like @silver I am in the camp of I would rather sell 1 pen for 100 than 10 pens for 10 each but I think I maybe will not have the skillset at first.

    This time next year I will be a millionaire.

    Gary,

    I honestly have no idea either, I haven’t sold any, it’s only pen no.9 for me, hence asking the question in another thread a week or so back as to what people would charge as the talent here is phenomenal and whilst I wouldn’t compare it would give me a base line.

    I’m very grateful for all the comments here and love seeing what everyone else produces, it just inspires and I really enjoy making them, and the shapes that come out as you turn, some straighter, some more rounded - I don’t know if I’m talking rubbish, but I just let the blank help me shape it..... it sounds bonkers as I write it but maybe it resonates with someone else too!

    Regards

    Padster
