I just got my first lathe (Turncrafter 12”) and after some practice with my tools I turned out my first pen! I think it came out pretty good. There are some minor checks in the finish but overall it is super smooth and the CA finish is going to last a long time! What do you all think?

Watch out, making pens is addictive. Did you use micromesh on the CA finish?

Haha! I’m beginning to see that! Yes I used the MM pads. I’ve always liked them when doing my bentwood rings so kept with them, although I’ve read many prefer the papers.

I used the MM pads for the first time on a pen that I made last night. My only worry is about how long will they last since they aren’t cheap. But I loved how the finish turned out so probably worth it either way.

Have your say...
