So I thought I would have a go at pens and I am totally hooked now they are so much fun to make. These are all 7mm slim line kits that came with the mandrill.

In the 2nd pic going from left to right they are Elm, Cherry, Yew, mystery wood if anyone can tell what it is that would be great as I have quiet a lot of it to use, and Purpleheart. I finished the purpleheart pen with CA glue which seems pretty hard wearing, however I decided to finish the rest with Enduro satin varnish all sanded to 12000 grit and shine loads in the sun light.

Great looking pens!

I recently turned some pens…. they are indeed fun.
I need to make some more…. especially since they are a fantastic quick gift!!!

Have your say...
