Still working through a box of Corian blanks, and found a new Polaris Click from Woodturningz.com. Best of the Polaris kits so far. Very smooth action and it comes with a good refill.

The Corian is tough to turn. I bought a carbide spindle gouge to handle the tough material, and experimented with a skew chisel. Not the easiest job, but it finishes beautifully.

Phone sucks as a camera, but my wife is out with the good camera. She doesn’t let me know where she keeps all her toys.

I gave this pen as a gift, so I’m not sure if it is sticking for the new owner. I did write with it for a few days to make sure I had assembled it correctly, and it didn’t stick. The Polaris kit is not a premium kit, but it’s a good pen.
