On Saturday March 3rd, FLWT offered a Pen Turning workshop for members. FLWT Board Adviser, Jeffery Cheramie taught the workshop including instruction on how to cut mark and drill the wood blanks for the pens, how to mount the blanks on the pen mandrel, how turn turn the blanks and how to finish and assemble the pens for use.
Participants watched and worked intently along with the help of several FLWT member assistants. At the end of the day, everyone went home with at least one completed pen and parts to make another pen or two and also the tooling necessary to produce pens in the their home shops. Most importantly they all learned and applied new skills at the lathe.
Thanks to all of the participants and member volunteers for their efforts and support and a special thank you to Jeff Cheramie for a fantastic job putting together and teaching a great workshop for the benefit of our membership!
