An acrylic slimline pen hand turned by me on a lathe in my own UK workshop using Corian. A choice of colours with this pen design duck egg green, red or white fleck. Corian: a solid surface material primarily used for countertops and work surfaces, though it has many other uses.
Corian is a mixture of acrylic resin and bauxite ore, very tough and cool to the touch. The resin is cut to size for the pen and then drilled with an appropriately sized hole, I then mount this on my lathe and turn and shaped it to about 10mm in diameter because of the limitations of this material. Corian blanks are very hard and can be difficult to work with, so lots of turners avoid them. The resin is then sanded from 120 grit through to 12000 grit for a high gloss finish.
Another Corian pen that deserved its own page is the black classic pen.
This handmade acrylic pen has a high-quality gold-plated trim, and it uses a black ballpoint cross-type refill available from my pen spares refills or any good stationery suppliers.
Every ballpoint pen gift comes in a presentation box as standard. As each handmade pen is different with varying colours, they will all make good gift ideas mum’s birthday and quality handmade gifts for all sorts of gift occasions.
