I got a lathe in June 2015. It sat unused until October 2015 when I was finally able to purchase some tools. To learn how to turn, I am starting with pens. I got everything I needed to make pens and have made 2 on this lathe. The first two pens I made were at a friend's shop. He invited me to check out his shop and showed me how to turn pens. I knew then that I needed a lathe because it was just fun to turn out a completed project from scratch in such a small amount of time. I'd like to get into segmented turning at some point...

I'm still learning in this video, so if I'm doing something wrong, I would appreciate some constructive comments.
