This is my entry into Bill Livolsi’s No Lathe Pen Challenge (link below). Since so many people made so many great pens I decided to make the most simple pen I could think of, and focus on making my own ink. Both of these were a first for me and a couple items of the maker bucket list. Had a lot of fun, and I can’t believe how well it worked!

Just a quick tip to make your own edge clamps. This is similar to the “Rockler Bandy Clamp” but at a fraction of the cost. For the price of two bandy clamps (on sale) you can make 8+ of these.
Soo yeah this project didn’t quite go as planned. This was the first project I ever made on a lathe, apart from my total lack of experience the lathe was not running properly. This is more of a fail reel than a project but hey why not share =) this was made several months before it was published and I have since gotten a new lathe and everything is better now.
My 5yo wanted to design his own costume this year. He came up with the idea, design, and dimensions. All I did was put it together =)
