We have been making pens at my house. After my daughter’s boyfriend’s mother (who we’ll call Beth from here on, especially if you can follow that family connection) saw the pen her son made, my daughter saw a great opportunity for a bit of brown nosing. Here is the photo story and proof of my daughter making a pen for Beth. It is Tambooti wood with a friction polish finish. Notice the beautiful hand model in the main picture with that nice manicure.
First up is cutting the wooden blank in two at the band saw. This is the first time she’s been allowed to use the bandsaw because her Dad was stupid a few years ago and cut off part of a finger with a jointer, now everybody has to be extra safe!
This is the only thing Dad got to do, glue the brass tubes into place. The only reason was that she had glued her fingers together on a previous pen, and ruined her manicure that was only one day old.
