How a Image Blank is Created for a Handmade Pen at WhataPen

Here are the steps I use when I am making the image blanks for my handmade pens.  First it gets turned, then wet sanded and finally polished.  Then the assembly process begins.  Now what I don't show is how to actually create the blank, that is more of a proprietary process.

First is the turning of the image blank on the lathe.

Second is the wet sanding process up to 12k grit.

Third and last is the polishing process.

Here is a POV from the faceshield when turning.
