June, 2013—This is my first pen turned from an acrylic blank. The pen kit is called “Elegant Sierra Two-Toned Copper Pen Kit Style B”. The pen kit and blank came from a friendly on-line store I discovered called Bear Tooth Woods.
I used a carbide-tipped tool to rough it out, then followed with a mini roughing tool, followed by a mini scraper. Then sand paper down to 1200 grit. Then 0000 steel wool. Finish is a couple of coats of Briwax.
Since I’m new at pen turning, all tips, tricks, and suggestions eagerly accepted! :-)
