Well, it's my first if I don't count a few aborts trying to figure out the process.. :smile:
Body is a alumilite water clear with Mica powder swirled in and cast in a PVC tube. Section is Delrin. I filled the divots from turning between centers on each end with red epoxy. Nib is a #5 Jowo...
Just got an email in today ... the new dip pen is in and available!
You get 5 per order, they come with 7mm tubes, 5 small sections (metal), and 5 screw-in fountain pen nibs.
They are designed to be used in-line with the handle of a pen that can be turned between centers or with a closed...
Finally got some time, now that the semester is done, to turn a couple of new pens. The first is a commissioned piece that I hand't tried before - an antique pewter Celtic Fountain pen. The second is a chrome Navigator roller ball pen out of a mystery wood from my random stack =)
I have just completed my first fountain pen. I've been sitting on this Windsor kit I got from The Golden Nib (TGN) for a long time. I just did not have the time or tools to make it. It required 31/64" and 33/64" bits, which I finally got. I also splurged on the Amboyna burl blank for this pen. I...
I finished this guy up over the weekend, and am pretty happy with how it came out.
I've gotten a few remarks regarding how "fat" I made the body. This is mostly just a personal preference of mine. I personally like a weightier pen, and it feels better in my hand.
This was my first attempt at...
Left to Right:
24k Gold Bolt Action Bullet Pen with Cocobolo
Gunmetal Bolt Action Bullet Pen with Indian Ebony
Antique Brass Celtic Pen with Cocobolo
Chrome Presimo Fountain Pen with Genuine Mahogany.
I made these for several different orders for a few people. It only took about 3 hours...
after a long semester with three classes, I finally found time to get out to the shop. Made a great cedar fountain pen for an old boss, and great friend. Not my best work, but I am happy with it. C&C welcome!
This is the latest pen I did it is a fountain pen if you look closely you can see the face of two monkeys on it one happy and one not. i also add the pic of the blank before it was turned C&C welcome.
I am an ex-penturner, having sold my lathe due to a change of residence not having the space/area needed for a workshop. I am quite sad still about this, and use my kit-less pens every day still, and miss the enjoyment of creating these one-off pieces.
I have still been drawing away...
Hello folks. Been a while since I posted, so I thought I would put a few pics of things I've been up to lately.
Flamed cane fountain pen with garnet thread wrap
Before falling headlong into pen making, I used to (and still do occasionally) build fly fishing rods - both graphite and bamboo...
This pen was made from White Tail Deer Antler, Teak & Ebony woods accented with a 24 kt Gold Tycoon Fountain Pen Kit from PSI. It was a little tricky getting the antler ends square but it turned out ok in the end.
I just recently completed a Series 2000 Flat Top Fountain Pen and I do like the slim design. However, I felt that the black plastic finial tube looked cheap. Does anybody share this opinion? Is there a metal alternative to this finial? Or is the overall feel of the pen high quality? It was not...
I'm still working on my photography skills, but this pen is a spalted two-tone afzelia burl from Bad Dogs. It's also my first FP, and is one I may be keeping for myself. CA Finish, 6 coats, then buffed with a little carnauba wax on a wheel.
Few more Jr. Gent's from this week.
First off a Rhodium Jr. Gent I complete with Sodalite Tru-Stone, and Alt Bone Segments. Thought this was going to be a little cooler than it turned out to be. Too much negative space on the cap. Thinking about having the cap laser engraved, and color...
