Marlynn began his appreciation of wood as a child when he helped his father plant over 30,000 trees in the Nebraska Sand Hills. During high school he was introduced to turning, which has become his passion since his retirement upon acquiring an old lathe at auction. He loves that you don’t really know what you have until you not only turn the wood but sand, smooth & finish it. Long a resident of Boonville, MO, he has recently returned to Nebraska. His pens can be refilled with a standard Cross refill.
