The church services auction is this weekend so I thought I’d turn a pen to donate in addition to my cutting board.
This is my effort – raises a few questions for you all.
First, Miss Kitty says Hello.
OK – here’s the pen.
This pen is the European style from Woodcraft.
When you have a pen with a design like this – do you line up the design with the pen closed or open? I’m sure it’s probably a personal choice – but what are your thoughts?
When using a CA glue finish – how do you avoid getting a small ridge in the finish? I’ve tried using a very tiny bit of CA glue and a little bit more (3 drops) glue. I managed to get it good and smooth – but it took a lot of effort. What’s the trick?
Last but not least—- is there a 12 step program for turning?
Oh – Miss Kitty says she’s out of here!
