Since I joined LJ about 10 days ago I’ve commented on posts, posted blog entries, and shown known proof that I’ve ever made a single woodchip. So, here’s proof that I know how to turn a pen at least.
The first is a Pen and Pencil set from cocobolo, my personal set that I carry with me every day. I prefer a pencil for notes, etc, and the pen for signing legal like stuff.
The second is a single-tube kingwood ‘inlayed’ with maple dowel. I actually needed to patch this one when one of the dowels flew out on a minor catch.
Third Pen is Bloodwood
The fourth pen is, I think, cocobolo with laminations of acrylic sheet.
With the exception of my personal set, all these have been sold over the previous summer. Just on my way to becoming a millionair a few bucks at a time.
All pens were finished with behlen turner’s finish, and buffed with a Beall three-on-lathe buffer.
