Thank You. I sand to 600 grit and finish w/ the Myland’s 3 step system (sealer, polish, wax) in most cases. In some cases like the antler and the laser kits I finish w/ CA.

where do you get your supplies for making pens from? I’m going to be trying my hand at it within the next 2 months i would say and there are so many different places you can order stuff from!

I use 4 suppliers for the majority of my supplies
woodcraft.com
woodturnerscatalog.com
pennstateind.com
woodturningz.com

All have great products at reasonable prices.

I normally shop for the deals and the new items. I really like Penn State’s starter packages where they give you some pen kits, the drill bits and the bushing at a discount. Great way to try out new stuff.
