I had a little time left and needed to let the bookcase I’m building sit. So, what to do, what to do???
Duh, what else? Turn a pen. ;)
I had just gotten a 2-DVD set of demos from Terrence over at the IAP
featuring sessions from a gathering organized last year.
I watched two sessions, one on polyresin turning and one on finishing.
So, tonight I tried putting into practice what I studied, and this is my 40-minute speed pen;
that’s the time from milling, drilling, glueing, skewing, and finishing and assembling this pen.
I’m pretty pleased with the results.
It’s a gunmetal slimline outfitted with curly black cherry burl.
Most of the burl turned off, leaving predominantly curl.
