  2. not sure what to call this cigar

    While working on my double knot, I wanted to make something else as well. Here's what I came up with. upper barrel: the dots are maple inlays (they only appear on the side of the pen currently displayed).

  4. A different cigar

    Tried a couple of different things here. I made a new sled with a steep angle: 70 degrees and tried it out on a Cigar kit. The rings being much longer, I decided to try my hand at a closed-end pen. Hence this Cigar:

  6. Cigar boxes

    My local cigar shop owner asked if I could make him 100 or so boxes that he could sell his cigars in. He orders his cigars straight from the source and puts his own labels on them. So he wanted his own boxes. I was able to make 110 of these from 5 sheets of 4×8 birch veneer ply. Made a lot...

  10. Flame Birch Cigar Pen

    I was pleasantly surprised at the iridescent flamed grain in this wood. This was my first attempt at a custom finial. I was so excited about the custom finial that I parted it off before finishing it :( So I just put on a few coats of mineral oil and BLO.

  14. Bethlehem Olive Wood Cigar Pen

    Olive wood from the Holy Land (yes that Bethlehem). I've read about other projects made with this wood, and how it smelled like olive oil when turned. As soon as a piece finally made the rounds in the 3rd tour of the pen traders box (I love being a lumberjock!). I snagged it. Olive wood from...
  15. two, two-tone platinum pens

    Two Tone Bamboo Modified Slimline Actually a fast growing grass, but as tough as maple, bamboo is a very sustainable product. This design is actually a modification to the standard slimline kit. Rather than include the narrow centerband, instead I used an asymmetrical centerband of natural...

  18. I think it's Cocobolo...

    Bought some scraps at Woodcraft of exotic cut offs. This scrap was suspected to be Cocobolo, but it had some interesting qualities during turning. It shaved beautifully and was fairly easy to turn, but during finishing seemed to weep sap. After I had used PPP low lustre and started shellawax...
