These pens were made for my mother-in law after years of promising her one. I was introduced to pen turning in 1998 when I first started teaching. It was my intent to make family pens for Christmas that year. Didn’t get that accomplished, so I wrapped up a regular pen with an IOU.

I then moved schools and no longer had access to a lathe. Finally in the last couple of years, teaching woodworking again, I am back into pen turning. My 6 year old son loves to help also.

Sanded to 600grit with traditional sandpaper
One coat of mylands friction polish applied with lathe off and allowed to dry completely.
7-8 more additional coats applied with lathe running, then buffed off. Feels glass smooth
