Thomas. I agree that fruit woods can be incredibly hard and so interesting. I was given a piece of Mulberry burl by my brother. I was very proud of the bowl I turned out of it but I was amazed at how beautiful the wood was and felt guilty that I should have made better use of that piece of wood. I am going to get me a pen mandrel and turn a few pens. Nice work my young physicist. You keep it interesting.

Plum is some nicely colored wood, indeed. Does the wood maintain its color after finishing?

Great looking pen.
Curious about changing the bevel of the carbide insert, did you use diamond to do that?
Square or round cutter?
I have considered trying to sharpen some that I have but have yet to do it.

Roud cutter, diamond wheel on the Dremel, yep. The corundum wheel was waaay too slow chewing through the carbide. Given their cheap price ($15 for 20 of them on ebay) I didn’t hesitate at all messing around with one. Win.

Thanks for the reply.
Do you think it was sharper than new after using the diamond wheel?

Oh, definately not, mainly because I ground it perpendicularly to the attaching axis… But you can get a decent polish if you spend some time with a coruundum wheel after grinding the bulk with the diamond wheel. I’ll work it again the right way next time ;)

Indeed, it was a big surprise to see the carbide being ground so easily with the diamond wheel, how to turn cheap metal turning inserts into wood turning inserts!

@ AtomJack: so far, the color didn’t change. The CA glue deepened it a bit, of course, but only time will tell.
