This is my second attempt at turning some pens. The first one didn’t turn out so well, and one of them went thru the wash. Three of them are slimlines and the other is a fountain pen. First one on the left is maple (I think, it may have been part of the south african blanks that I got), then walnut, and the last 2 are purple heart.
These finish on these turned out better than last time. I sanded them down to 600 (probably more than I needed to) and then put on 3 coats of CA glue. Sanded between the coats lightly, and finished with 3 coats of a friction polish. This may not be a preferred method of finishing them, but I’m learning. Any tips from some other pen makers would be appreciated as I’m still learning.
Thanks for looking.
