« Part 14: EPIC FAILURE! Pushed the WEN lathe too far? Part 15 of Journey into Woodturning series Part 16: Humpty Dumpty sat on my lathe! »

I tried my hand at turning a Legacy Old-Line Pen, which is a two part pen kit. Main body seem simply enough and even the top appeared to be straight forward. However, I need longer pen blanks for this kit. Also need 10mm drill bit, that I over look initially. Not to mention, old glue that seemed to dry on contact with the wood before I could activate it, were just a few problems I had along the way in this video.

Eventually, I managed to get all my ducks in a row and marched toward a finished pen. On the final steps on pulling the part together it was painfully obvious that the pen construction was a failure, yet again. This time, there will not be a forth attempt.

I do not like this pen design and find it hard to believe I will attempt to make this again. For a “larger” pen I will stick to the Jr. Zen Pen or the regular slim line pens for now.

Here is this week’s video: “EPIC FAILURE turning “Legacy Old Line Pen kit””:
