Turning Archive 2004
Jim Shaver Oakville, Ont
I tried a new twist on a standard slimline twist pen this morning and thought I’d share my results with you. This kit is the titanium Slim Twist pen kit from Lee Valley, I took the kit and on inspiration from some pens I have seen turned by Scott Greaves I replaced the center gold band with a wood band.
The woods are curly maple and a snake wood band.
The finish is a poly, wax, friction polish combination of applications.
This was fun, the opportunities to add some custom accent to a pen really expand with this process as well as the chance to use up all those small cuts offs I have been saving from previous pens.
Thanks for viewing,
