Chiyogami Paper Pen Blanks for Sierra Pens    $13.95   

We now have a range of beautiful pen blanks specifically made for the Sierra Pen.  These are Pen Blanks made with special paper which is wrapped around the tube and set in clear resin.
The result is a beautiful pen which you turn just as you would for either Timber or the acrylic pen blanks.
Finishing is done with Micro Mesh and it gives a glass like finish which accentuates the beautiful patterns in the paper.  
Chioyogami is the name given to paper used for Origami - The art of Japanese Paper folding.  We have selected some of the nicest patterns in a range of different colours for you to turn.
In addition we have a number of "themed" patterns for specific causes.  We will be expanding the available patterns over time.  At this point there are 14 patterns to choose from.

We stock a large range of Wood Turning supplies, wood turning tools including a range of Hamlet and P&N.
Also some great machinery, wood polishes, exotic timber and a huge range of pens and accessories.

Have you Tried Brass or Copper inlay?

Brass or Copper inlay can have a big impact on the look of your work.  In the example on the right we have laser cut an image into a turned disc and filled with brass powder and super glue and sanded back to reveal the image. It is important to use thin super glue in a well ventilated area.

Both copper and brass inlay powder are available in 100gm bags for $12.95 depending on availability.

We can also arrange for laser engraving to be done if required.

Give us a call or come in to see us if you want to know more on 03 9727 0611 or info@popsshed.com.au

Stone Inlay in Wood

  One of the areas where we are providing master classes is in the process of using Stone inlay in turned timber.  We are happy to provide these classes to woodworking clubs at no charge.

 We now have a range of inlay stone available for inlay into turned bowls and platters.  If you  haven't tried it please come and talk to us about how to start.  There is also a document on the  Stone Inlay page of our website which will help you understand the process.


There are a range of different types of stones available which have been sourced from Mount Isa. These include Malachite, different shades of Calcite, Azurite and a range of others which give a great range of colours.  

At Pop's Shed we sort, crush and size the stones into four different sizes for your projects.

We also have a range of Dremel tools and attachments for those who are into carving and aiming to embed stone or embellish with wood dyes. 

We have added a video on how to inlay stones into turned timber.  Select Stone Inlay from the left hand pane to view the video.
