My daughter gave me a wonderful selection of pen blank timbers and inserts – next step was for me to turn them into pens. And today, with the cooler weather and evening rain, it was a perfect time to relax in the workshop and turn a few pens.
As near as I can identify them, the fan photo from left to right shows pens from jarrah, mahogany, rosewood, purpleheart, and two laminates of multicoloured woods.
All are finished with three grades of sandpaper: 320; 600; 1500 grit. Then two coats of cyanoacrylate (superglue) – for weather proofing and high gloss.
I had fun – I hope you did too :-)
