How I make a Pen (Simplified)

31 May, 2014

Here's how to make a pen:

  1. I start with a piece of real white-tailed deer antler (or any other material). 
  2. Next ill cut the antler to the required length of the pen tube.
  3. Then I drill a hole in the antler.
  4. I mount the piece on the lathe using a mandrel.
  5. While the lathe is turning I cut it using a roughing gouge.
  6. I sand then finish it using CA glue which makes a brilliant shine.
  7. I take it off the lathe and assemble the pen by pressing all these parts into the pen barrel.
  8. The process of making a pen is complete and now you have beautiful useful writing instrument.
