So I've made quite a few wooden pens but turning acrylic is just a more fun medium than wood is when it comes to pen turning. So what I like about acrylic is that you don't have to finish it. Since acrylic doesn't show signs of wear and tear over the years (like wood), you really don't have to worry about finishes. But I do polish it with micro mesh sandpaper up to 12,000 (yes, 12,000). If you would like to purchase some pens or other cool things, check out my eBay store: http://www.ebay.com/usr/dste6080 Enjoy the video!
