Lip and spur bits hold centre best but support your blank on a sacrificial board to eliminate untidy break out and careful as you go.Turn - using a scraper or skew chisel on its side with a gentle handle high action. Finish Sand - dry to 400 grit working through the grits - followed by wet sanding using Micro-Mesh abrasives or fine wet and dry abrasive to a high gloss finish. The biggest difficulty you will have is keeping the finished pen!
