Atlas pen made with Veranda brand composite decking, made from recycled wood and recycled plastics, turned (pun intended) into this handsome pen. A recycled project made from recycled materials – this is green taken to the next level. This is a very comfortable pen to hold and use, warm to the touch.
I found this was easy to machine, and thought it would be easy to turn…. it’s almost like turning clay. Such a pleasure to turn, and makes for a really quick project. If not for tim’s pen, I might have been afraid it wouldn’t sand smooth, but rather remain scratched… however all’s well. The pen is sanded super smooth (to 2000), buffed and finished with several coats of high build friction polish and bowling alley floor wax, and buffed again!
