Assembling the Pen on Mandrel (Step 6)

Once the tubes are inserted into the wooden blanks, the pen must be assembled on a mandrel prior to mounting on the lathe. Each pen design has special bushings, which are assembled on the mandrel along with the pen blanks. Note that the direction of the wood grain which was marked in Step 1 is maintained to ensure a consistent look to the pen.
