  1. There are some programs out there that get turned pens out to the people currently serving in the our military. It was always on my bucket list to participate. I think some of the programs actually send the kits out no charge to be turned and returned for distribution. I happened to have a few kits on hand so I decided to just turn them and get them sent out to someone who could get them to the right people. They are on now in transit. These are mostly Cherry with a few Purple Heart and some Brazilian Cherry. The dark brown are from a dowel rod I purchased at a hobby store. I have notic
  2. Please check out my story and tell me what you think. Please leave a comment at the end of the article if you wish. It helps me build traffic for the web. http://blog.woodcraft.com/2013/01/joel-green-the-woodworking-scribe/
  3. Here's a chance for our turners to help make a difference in the life of a service person- Click on the above image for the complete details. You don't have to visit a Woodcraft store to participate!
  4. So tonight I decided to turn a couple of acrylic pen barrels since I just got a shipment in today. I also tested out a new camera for recording that was COMPLETE and utter trash. So I will be sticking with my iphone from now on. Either way I think I hit a few air pockets in the acrylic. It just wanted to chip I will leave the video from the turning in here. But the quality is NOT as great as my Iphone. Tomorrow I'll be starting off on some new bowl projects since those will get in. So I'll get to try out my new EWT Mid sized rougher. Can ya see the huge difference in the video with the
  5. Either way with all of the information I've gathered about pen turning, watching quite a few youtube videos on basics and assembly, I think I'm at the point where I can get a functional pen made. I was out in the shed this morning I got the pen barrels turned out sanded and 1st coat of stain on in less than an hour and a half. Which is pretty good considering. I'm doing this one as a test run since I'm out of brass inserts and parts which are on order but wont be here for a week or so. I think my main goal is to stick with this for now until I can accomplish the task of getting this right.
  6. I have never even thought of turning a pine cone. I saw this picture and was amazed. I think It looks like most of it is 2 part epoxy. Anyone ever turn one?
  7. Anyone can join in to this fantastic tradition since 2004. Walk into any Woodcraft Store and turn pens for our troops!
  8. I have been making pens with bullet shells and then went on to nickel plating them. After that I tried the same method with copper plating. It didn't work out as well as I had hoped. I decided to go with the original formula using copper acetate and distilled water. Success! Should not have varied from the theme. The pictures don't do them justice but believe me they look like a shiny new penny. I also found out that the copper goes over the grass well but does not go over the nickel at all. Here are the best I could get for pictures. Here are all three. Po
  9. Friend of mine likes his .308 rifle and gave me some shells to see if a pen could be made using them. Well yes I can. I found the .308 shell was a bit short so I figured a spacer to make it longer was needed. Looked at various ways and materials for making the spacer and ended up with cutting the top off a second shell the necessary amount would be best. I like how they turned out and since I had a few .30-30 shells I made a couple from them too. The .30-30 shell was a tad longer than the .308 and on both I had to press a piece of 5/16" brass rod through the boss for the bullet to enlarge
  10. When making the .30-06 pen with the Zebra F-301 pen I start by taking the pen apart and removing the stainless tube. Take the pen apart and remove the tube with the logo on it. There is a detent on the tube so a half twist before pulling works best. I use a small pair of end nippers to grab the tube. I slide them into the hole the open pliers make and they clamp around the tube just enough to get it off. The lower ribbed part has to have 3.5 ribs turned down to fit into the shell where the bullet was. This makes the length right and the nib
  11. Bought some of these kits from a company named Woodcrafters of Oklahoma. They sat in a drawer for almost 15 years. When I pulled them out, I found that this company seems to be out of business. You suggested I call Berea Hardwood, and they did send some bushings and some Parker refills for the old kits. I have run into a problem: How do I install the refill? It doesn't seem to fit into the part I believe to be the correct one. I pulled another kit I have in stock, and the refill is the same as the one in the kit. It seems that it might have to be pressed into the pen part, but I am afraid that
  12. You guys helped me find pen parts from Berea Hardwoods, Now, if instructs says to press parts into wooden pen parts, do you use super glue on them?
  13. I started this project a while ago and had some interruptions but finally have them done. I planned on doing 60 pen and pencil sets but stopped at 53. I kept one set to show what they looked like before I changed them to wood. The chrome tips are the pens and black tips are the pencils. Light ones are Cherry, dark ones are Black Walnut and reddish ones are Honduran Mahogany. I left one set in their original state for reference.
  14. (Click on image for link) I saw these at the Woodcraft store the last time I was there. They looked well made and ideal for marking in those hard to reach places. $19.99 + 10 pack refill
  15. I have turned stick pens for years. They make a great give away and this year I decided to give all 45 of my cousins on my late father's side of the family at our annual reunion in a couple weeks. I decided to make a few extra so I did 60. I got the Bic pens at Wally World. They were a dozen in a package for $1.17 of roughly 10 cents each. I would hope my labor is worth the other two cents. I put a personal touch to mine by making brass inserts where the Bic ink cartridge is inserted using a Unimat Hobby lathe. The pens are made from some left over Br
  16. Made a peeler and sketch pencil. The pencil is for the wood shop.
  17. "Of course I have Plan.." Or so Boris always said. I took the time out today to do a bit of drawing on paper, using a pen and a straightedge. Resting the knee, of course. Anyway, I start with a few lines.. What you see here is the front edge of the corner post. The horizontal lines are webframes, with a face frame attached. . I will be using a couple 1x8 x8' planks to make the bottom two drawers. So that is where the 7-1/2" comes from. Face frames are dovetailed into the corner posts. Hashed lines show where the webframes sit behind the face frame. That
  18. I saw these at Woodcraft and just had to make one.
  19. Just got this pen done today
  20. Hi guys and ladies. For those that do not follow me on Facebook, I wanted to show something that I created for a friend. This is Corian, that is patterned to what looks to me like cream of wheat of some sort. It was sanded and polished, no other treatment (like CA) was used. This is mounted on a Slimline twist pen kit from PSI, which uses a Cross refill. It comes with a black ink refill, but you can probably get blue and maybe even red if you want it, from basically any office supply you frequent. Thank you for looking
  21. Well the historic wood pen turning project is moving along, slowly, but moving. Part of the deal was to make two special presentation boxes for those responsible for securing monies. The main turner involved doesn't have many wood working tools so the box making fell on me. No one had a plan as to what they wanted the boxes to look like. OK, I've made some boxes but I don't feel my skills are really up to what I think they should be for this type of project. Especially with this precious wood. My original design was to have the box larger, but the size of the bea
  22. Hi Folks, Turning a lot of pens the last several weeks, I got to looking for the various ink refills, to offer on my site, and I am running into brick walls trying to find a wholesale source. It seems one can get the knock off, no brand, made in china refills for about 25 cents each (parker style ballpoint) or in excess of $5 each for carded singles. I looked at my normal sources but they dont post bulk discounts on refills. Anyone have any suggestions?
  23. Hi guys, i started on this project several days ago and just got it finished today. It is one of the pens I recently purchased a kit for that I hope will be a good seller for this time of year. The pen is quite heavy due to the wood used which is Bocote, but mainly because it is brass too. It's sure to get a few looks
  24. Here is the first pen I have made from the surf gel blank. It was very hard and brittle but turned out well. Comments and such welcome.
