Probably 10 hrs or so, couple hrs at a time. Most of the time spent moving and packing the thread together.The pictures are spot on, Dale, and I was fascinated with the whole process which results in an outstanding pen.
What sort of time does that process take?
It was 1oo% done on a lathe with a skew. From brass tube to finished pen. How much turning does a turner need to turn to woodturn pens?It's a thing of beauty and I'm full of administration. It's not Pen Turning but it's clever and a great effect.
