With the temperatures going up again, I can spend some time in the shed without freezing my fingers off... so I fired up the lathe this weekend and made my second ever pen.

Slimline kit, spectra-ply blank, sanded to 600, sanding sealer, and friction polish. Total time approximately two hours, including preparing the blank and assembly. Great fun, and sits well in my hand.

Alongside my first pen for comparison.

I really like the slim waist, reminds me of me about 40 years ago.
