Back to turning pens after long while, I tried to do something new. I turned this pen against its grain direction to expose the beauty of the grain from different angle, 90 degrees. To avoid chipping, I used only sanding instead of chisel. Yes, I hold the drilling machine with sanding disc against the pen blank while it was turning on the lathe. It took longer time to reach the design I wanted but made me satisfied by seeing the result. The wood was a nice piece of orange osage finished with bees wax.
