Default Made my first pen

Well although it looks to me very nice....for first successful pen, I noticed the
joints have small gap, I noticed some others may not. I did use a Barrell bit which is supposed to make it flat....but mine must have been off a little.

I will try again in a few hours with another blank...we will see.

Thanks for listening.

You managed to get the natural shape on the blank that flows perfectly with the hardware. Well done!!

Default Thank you guys

Just made my 2nd turn......looks beautiful the wood is amazing.

I sanded then I put carnauba wax on it twice and after dried and buffed I went over it with Shellwax from WoodCraft.
