With an extended weekend I decided to make a few pens. It’s been a while so it was nice to sit down with the lathe. I had stopped by a local Wood Craft who had a bunch of scrap wood on sale. After a lot of digging I was able to find some nice burls.
The first is a standard slimline. The set was my first pencil. I ran into some issues with voids, but I just filled it in with some CA and shavings. The last 2 are corian slimlines, one of which was my first without a clip. I took advantage of Wood Crafts sale on the Nova chuck, and decided to make a solid top pen. It’s thin at the top, but now I know to leave a little more stock the next time.
