Most who know me know that I have a magical ability to make a mess in 3 seconds flat and that it happens by some innate ability with great power.

Lately I was lucky enough to get a chance to learn how to use a lathe and turn a pen from some talented and very patient teachers at my day job. There is nothing more fun then learning something new in good company. A sierra style pen with zebra wood!
