Segmented Bowl Rock Oil Lamp, Let Your Light Shine

This is my first attempt at a Segmented Bowl, and wanted to add the oil lamp rock, just to see if I could, I liked the way it turned out and hope you enjoy it as well.

This is a personal experiment and is by No Means instructions on how to make an oil lamp, just how I made one. Be safe in your shop and use all safety guides instructed on Oil Fuel as well as Fire in the shop.

The Cost of Pen Turning

Patreon Page

I wanted to share with you the Cost of Pen Turning. This is my personal set up and what I use with costs. Keep in mind a lot of the ideas are one time buys, such as the lathe, turning tools, mandrel Etc others are as needed such as finishes, sand paper, and pen kits. Hope this will give you an idea of the cost, and what items you need.  Depending on if you want to sale Pens, and on your pricing, you can break even after 15 to 20 Pens sold.
