  1. My dad got a lathe for Christmas and he immediately started turning pens for me and my mom. What are your recommendations for good sources for the pen mechanics? He's less familiar with the writing aspect than the woodworking and wants to make sure he gets good parts. Thank you!

    Pen Tray Design

    Hello, I'm thinking of making a number of pen trays for the too many pens I have. My plan is to either build a box with several drawers of pen trays or to fit an existing frameless bookcase with shallow drawers. I'm thinking that since I plan to create the pen trays as a drawer insert that it would have to be some sort of stable sheet material that wouldn't expand or contract: something like MDF. My plan is to rout a flute into material with a core box bit, cut it out into a long strip, cut it to fixed length pieces and glue them side by side onto a hardboard substrate. By making this a kind of modular design, I'm basically trying to avoid having to rout uniform parallel flutes into a single panel. Then I would apply flocking to the surface to finish it off. I'm wondering if there's any flaw in my design that I should be concerned with? Alternatively, I have to ask myself whether it would just be better to buy one. It's a common question for woodworkers. There's one here that I can get locally at Lee Valley: http://www.leevalley.com/en/wood/page.aspx?p=54852&cat=1,250,43243,43245,54852. Has anyone had experience with this?
