This is the next installment on making a pen
The blanks are added to the mandrel.
You make sure that the grain is matched up to enhance the finished pen.
The pieces are then turned down to a smaller diameter ready to shape.
To start with i use a gouge and follow up with a fine edge tool to shape and get a smooth finish off the tool.
This helps with sanding which is the next operation.
Next week we will show the pens being completed.
