  1. Fun video Keith! I started by turning pens. Now I have a bunch of them but cant get rid of them. I tried selling them at a local crafts store but only sold a couple.

  2. Cracking pen Keith lovely bit of walnut,I use them myself never been let down.keep the videos coming mate πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

  3. That's a lovely job Keith. I'm going to get some of those kits. May I offer a tip please? There's nothing wrong with what you are doing but, as an added step, I find it useful when doing wooden pens to stop the lathe after sanding with P180 to check for sanding lines and spirals. If there are any I sand, by hand, with P180 (or the last grit I used) along the grain until they are gone. I make lots of pens and I've found that those lines generally don't disappear with higher grits but then appear when I put the sanding sealer on and I have to start again at P120 or P180.
    Right… off to Taylors Mirfield.
    Best Wishes, Brendan.

  4. Nice job Keith. I like your sense of humour. It's nice to turn a pen now and again instead of a large hunk of wood. I'm lucky enough to live near Taylors of Mirfield and a nicer guy you couldn't wish to meet. I made a couple of mistakes on pens and he will always try to help you out.Looking forward to your next vid.

  5. What are the bushes for Keith?
    Love the grain on the walnut.
    Why dont you go up as high on the sandpaper for uour bowls as well?
    It needs a desk pen stand now to keep it on show cos it is beautiful.

  6. Great video Keith , nice and easy to follow,Lovely pen. May i ask, what make vacuum you have as it seems quiet

  7. Glad you like the kits. Thank you for mentioning us. It’s great to hear feedback. Thanks again, Dan
