Pen turning not wood acrylic

After a long interval, I made pen turning.
I tried ball point pen with cap 1st time.

I had some mistakes, but recovered it.(I believe!)

My wife's impression is good, she said grip is easy!
I gave her my first work.

I reflected my work ;
The root cause of fail, I did not think my work shop is organized well.
Woodman should clean up his work shop and organized well.
Before next project, I should clean up and organized my shop.
