This pen and pencil set was originally going to be a Christmas set for one of my wife’s co-workers. However when it was finished she didn’t think the colors suited him. So, I think I am going to give it a shot selling on “that auction site”. It is the perfect colors for the University of Miami (Orange and Green) and came out pretty nice.

It is made with a standard 7mm slimline pen and pencil kit. The finish is Black titanium nitride (black chrome) using an acrylic blank. After making a few of these kits, I am becoming fond of the acrylic material as it polishes up quite nice.

Nice looking pens. I like different colors and stuff that looks different than the normal. Your wife’s co-worker’s loss. I have just started turning pens, but no acrylic yet, I have a few blanks but don’t have the sandpaper or polish for it yet. Having too much fun with the wood. I want to try corian and soft stone also sometime. Keep up the good work!

Very beautiful! What’s the name of the blank and where’d you get it?

The name of the blank is “Mica Pearl Wobali”. I got it from Penn State Industries. The picture they have of the plank shows that it is mostly green with some orange. However, the blanks I had were about 50/50.

You need to be sure to have sharp tools when turning this material as it chips very easy.

I’m just getting started in this whole woodworking thing. I’m anticipating buying a lathe to learn how to turn pens. I really like your design here. Any tips for a newbie?
