Pen-Blank Drilling Jig

A drill press plays a major role in pen-making but is effective only if you hold the blank securely and squarely while drilling. Made from any available shop scrap, this jig with its integral clamping fence promises perfect results every time. Construct the jig from plywood, solid wood, or medium-density fiberboard (MDF) as shown in the drawing, on next page. Measure the angle of the support fence carefully and attach it to the base with countersunk screws from underneath. Extra holes drilled into the top of the fence store pen-blank drill bits when not in use. To use, put the pen blank in place and hold it tight with a spring clamp. Center the bit over the blank and clamp the jig to the drill-press table.
