Turning a Cement Pen (no lathe)

In Tutorial by jackmanworks@gmail.com0 Comments

Turning pens made from cement, genius right? My original idea was just to pull the aggregate out of concrete and use that mixed with water for some pen blanks. You can see I wasn’t very optimistic because I poured enough for 6 pens and none of them came through alive. Luckily I had poured some other blanks in anticipation of that which were a mix of cement and epoxy. The blanks were first shaped on the disk sander and then I mounted them in the drill press to finish shaping. The drill press was also used as a pen press to assemble the pen kit.
