  2. midnight blue sycamore cigar pen

    challenged myself several ways on this one… - first crosscut/endgrain turning (turning no issue, but splotchy finish at first, but correctable) - first time using the skew (and used it exclusively) - second attempt at BLO-CA and dyeing (i think the results are much better) critiques...

  8. Cyanoacrylate (CA) Glue and Micro Mesh Pad Caddie for Pen Turning

    I made this Cyanoacrylate (CA) Glue and Micro Mesh Pad Caddie for working on pens at the lathe. I got tired of not remembering where the micro mesh was located and the various CA glues were always in different places. This caddie also has French Cleats on the back so it can be fixed on the...
  9. Cigar Pens - Banksia and Jack Daniels blanks.

    I finished both these pens yesterday, the Banksia blank is a resifill and I had a small tearout at the top of the bottom section. A bit of thought and I decided that I could rectify this by cutting the torn piece from the tube and fitting a piece of Ebony. That way it would match up with the...
