Product Information:

Show your colors with this head-turning, unique patriotic pen kit! Box elder and maple blanks are stabilized and dyed brilliant red and blue, then precision laser-cut. To finish the pen, assemble the individual stars and stripes into the precut blank, glue, trim, then turn, sand and finish. This is an intermediate to advanced level kit, but certainly within reach of most woodworkers by following the step-by-step instructions included with each kit. Inlay kits do not include pen kits. Pen kits sold separately.

    Comments about Pen Inlay Kit - Stars and Stripes Flag - for Navigator and Sedona :

    I love the looks of this pen. I was a little nervous, as I am an absolute amateur turner. It assembles well. I used epoxy, not CA, to assemble the parts. I did end up cracking the blue barrel when pressing in one star. I was able to put the crack under the clip, so you cannot see it. The epoxy meant it was very strong anyway. I recommend NOT using a gouge or skew to begin, but a semi-coarse sandpaper. I did use my very sharp carbide tipped "gouge" to "rough turn" the blanks after sanding "rough smooth" (You will understand what I mean if you build one). When you are sanding the barrels, you CAN get a bleed of the red into the white maple. Light sanding seems to stop this. I finished the barrels with semi-gloss polyurethane. After fully drying, the pen handles without any tackiness.
