Pen Turning at Prairieland Herbs Sample Sunday

One really interesting event at the Prairieland Herbs Sample Sunday this week was this demonstration of hand-turning pen barrels. Rick and Ryan Nail brought along a lathe and showed us how it is done.

The picture shows (clockwise, from top left) Rick working on a piece of yellow acrylic; a close-up of the turning in action; a polished pen barrel on the lathe; a display of finished pens; and centre, another view of the lathe in use.
These pens make unique, beautiful and practical gifts, and Rick and Ryan will be back for future events, so keep an eye on for details.
