Acrylic pen

This is a pen I made a while back but it is still my favorite. Acrylic pens are a little harder than wood to turn but once you turn a few it gets easier.

I'm thinking that 3D glasses would really give me a head trip looking at this pen. What a fantastic looking piece. The acrylic looks like it actually has depth. Kind of like looking into a large marble. Great work. love it.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

How does the acrylic finishing process vary from wood?
