The turned ceiling fan pull kit is a fun and simple turning project that turners of all levels will enjoy.  This really is a simple turning project.  If you’re familiar with turning pens then this will be a piece of cake.  Another big plus is that it’s very affordable.  You can change the look of a ceiling fan for just a few bucks, put your own feel to it, and have fun while doing it.  The kit has only four components to it including the brass tube.  So if you’re looking for an easy project to do in just a couple hours this is a great one to do.

For a little extra help with this project I also put together a video of how I made this below.



Materials & Hardware

  • (1) Turned Ceiling Fan Pull Kit
  • (1) Pen Blank (I used Padduk for mine)

Milling & Assembly
