We’ll introduce novices and more experienced woodturners to the lathes, tools and techniques needed to begin turning pens and pencils. With a choice of many wood and resin blanks, pen kits and finishes now available in store, the creative possibilities are practically endless.

During the demonstration, we’ll cover blank preparation and mounting, tool selection and use, design considerations, shaping and finishing. Our store specialist will share sufficient practical guidance to enable you to make a start on pen turning almost immediately. Remember, if you buy any Axminster Craft lathe, we’ll provide you with a free three-hour introduction to woodturning with one of our team specialists. For this demonstration, we recommend joining us at the start and staying through to the close to make sure you get the full benefit of each stage of instruction.
