Bent Lamination Pen

Introduction: Bent Lamination Pen

About: Teacher. Climber. Craftsman.

I created this video as a submission to Bill Livolsi's (of One Car Workshop) No Lathe Pen Challenge.

I ripped a thin strip of maple on the table saw and cut segments to match the brass tubes from pen kit. The segments were soaked over night, wrapped around the brass tubes and allowed to dry. I used two segments per brass tube, and glued the pieces using Tightbond III. I wrapped the pieces with masking tape to keep them clamped over night. A little sanding by hand cleaned up the outsides, and I used a belt sander to clean and square up the ends. The pen is finished with two coats of Arm-R-Seal.
