New to Etsy? Here is a tutorial on the checkout process: http://www.etsy.com/help_guide_checkout.php


How it's done:

I get the wood generally in large boards and cut down to a small size called a "blank". Sometimes I obtain the wood already cut to a blank. It is generally about 3/4 to 7/8 inch in diameter and 5 to 6 inches long.

Next, I cut it to the appropriate length for the style of pen I am making.

Next, I carefully drill a varying diameter hole (anywhere from 7mm to 11.5mm) through the blank in order to insert the brass tube support body for the pen.

Next, the brass tubes are epoxy glued into the wood after being sanded to give the epoxy glue something to grip.

Next, after the glue has cured for some time, I true the ends to make them as flush as possible so that the pen's hardware components can fit snug.

Next, I put the wood blanks on my lathe and gently turn them down to whatever profile I desire or to the metal bushing guides or to your specifications.

Next, I sand the wood to make it super smooth and give it a finished profile and apply the finish. This process can be anywhere from 13 to 20 steps, depending on the wood.

Lastly, I use a pen press to assemble all the hardware onto the newly turned wood body.

The pen is ready for use now!
