it’s not actually made of wood but I guess you could count this as a completed project. Actually two!
These are my first trys at turning acrylic. It’s is actually very easy and the acrylic really shines!
I sanded through the grits from 220, 320, 400, 600 then wet sanded with a 1200 sanding pad. I used Brasso (liquid) to polish it and boy oh boy it really works well! No need for special acrylic polish.
The first one is for my wife. It’s a Princeton pen kit from Woodcraft. The second is for my 12 yo son. It is a PSI bolt action pen kit.
I hope that you are inspired to try turning some acrylic for yourself.
Thanks for looking!
Opps! I should have added that I didn’t actually turn the bolt action pen, my 12 yo son did. I did help when turning the ends next to the bushings and I did the final polish on the blank but he did 90% of it. I didn’t want to get the credit since he did it!
