I have always loved turning wood. It is a zen like experience. Even if I have 100 balusters to turn there never seems to be any boredom, you can always make a better cut get a sharper tool ,or discover a new more useful grind. The trick to learning any skill is multiples. The more you do do a task the more your muscle memory kicks in. I always look forward to making a 100 or more of an item. These pens are scraps of wood with a hole drilled in the blank the size of a Bic insert. Tagua nuts are a palm nut that looks like ivory.
