Making of the Islander - Video

A few weeks ago, I had posted a video on Youtube. This video describes the process I use for making the Islander pen.


I have found that finishing the pen from outside first and then working on the inside, makes it easier. This is possible because the material used for this pen is primarily a rolling pin, which is more than 10 inches in length. So the outer shape of the pen can be machined on one end of the rolling pin and immediately finished before cutting it up into pieces.


The picture above shows turned blanks that are ready for the next step. The CA glue will be stripped off the blanks at a later stage.
