Turning Pens

Record #:
Jerry Byrum of Bertie County has worked in woodwork a large part of his life, making furniture and gun cabinets. For the past ten years he has been creating pens and pencils. He describes how he makes them and the materials used, and Thadd's photographs illustrate the process. Cost of a pen ranges from $30 to $40, which, he indicates, is a problem with sales in the local area.
