John I see you have installing the comfort grip down pat. I really like the looks of that corian also. Thanks for sharing

John, Just catching up around here. Sorry I missed these earlier, they look good. Like the Awl, need to make one of those myself one day.
Hope all is well and you and kids will get in plenty of shop time this summer.

Great fit and finish. The White color really pops on the pens with the black and gold!!!
Did you sneak in on the 1/2” thickness of the solid surface or did you have to glue it up to get the thickness to turn?

Used the 1/2 in, works fine for the slimline pens. Used up some glued up edging for a couple of shavers, needed the thickness. Not sure I posted here, but glued up four 1/2 in squares with a 3/4 in walnut with thick CA glue. Turned a nice little bowl. Makes a mess.
