Been turning some more pens with acrylic blanks. These are Genesis pen blanks. These are the first two that I have done. They are VERY brittle and chip out easily. I even sharpened my tools! ha ha! Not sure if I like turning them or not because of it. They sure do polish up nicely and I love the colors!

These are the ””Retro””:—-Chrome.aspx pen kits from Woodcraft. I really like this style.

Let me know what you think and thanks for looking!

Very nice Brett. Some of those acrylics are very brittle. Your tools definitely need to be sharp. You have to be sure to not “force” the tool, weather it be a cutting chisel or a drill bit. (always, always back up the drill bit exit when boring the hole for the brass sleeve). Let the tool do the cutting for sure. Spinning is rewarding for sure.
