Living in Southern Indiana

I have been in woodworking for some 40 years or so.  I am a self-taught wood turner.  It started about two years ago when I turned my very first pen at a woodworking show in Indianapolis Indiana.  Prior to this turning of a pen I had not turned anything on a lathe.  I turn pens and other things on an older lathe that I refurbished myself.  I love working with wood.  I have turned pens from about 100 different species to date. (as of 8-2011)  I have been known to turn about anything on my refurbished Jet1236 Jet Wood Lathe.  I have turned pens and pencils from many woods as stated, acrylics and plastics including P.V.C. that's been recycled, plywood, bone, butcher blocks, aluminum and Solid-Surface Materials like those used for countertops.  I have used  Antlers from animals like Deer, Elk & Buffalo.  Most of which are what I call "sheds" or those that fall off the animal and are  replaced each year.  I have made pens from snake skinsFor an interesting touch or something different to turn a pen from; I cruise junk shops, antique and Goodwill Stores, and flea markets looking for anything I can "recycle" into a pen.  I have used bullet casings and real bullets in making pens.
