Beware. Pen turning can consume you. It can lead you into all sorts of
other stuff and can become very expensive if you let it. <DAMHIKT>
I have been turning pens for about 18 months. Had to learn how to sharpen
tools. Learned a lot about drilling materials. Learned a lot about
different glues. Spent a lot of time experimenting with different finishes
/ techniques. Ventured into turning exotic woods, plastic, acrylic, corian,
antler, horn, corn cobs, aluminum and so on. There is a lot of information
on the internet about turning pens. Some of it is even inspirational.
Most pens will typically use Cross or Parker refills (depending on the type
of pen you choose).

Measure twice, cut once... if it is too
short, consider design modification...
