Here are a few pens that I turned on my lathe. The first is turned from a piece of Aluminum, the second is a Black and White Acrylic, third is Cherry Burl, Fourth is a Black & Orange Swirled Acrylic, fifth is another Cherry Burl, sixth is Ambrosia Maple, seven & eight are more Acrylics.
The wood pens are sanded to 1200 grit and finished with a French Polish while turning on the lathe. The Acrylic pens are sanded, sanded and sanded – then I sand a little more and finally finish with an Acrylic Polish while spinning on the lathe – same with the Aluminum pen. Pictures aren’t the best, sorry.
