Dovetail Pen Progress Pictures.
OK, I managed to get a few pictures off the camera. Just bare with me, this is my “garage” camera so the resolution/quality is not top notch.
The three following picture are: #1 – My collection of dovetailed pen blanks. End to end joints for the dovetails. #2 – A closeup of some of the chipout I experienced along the joint seams. You can see the CA glue that I used to solve this issue in the picture. #3 – Finished pen blanks, first attempt. In this picture you can see that the dovetail line is not quite straight. This makes for a lousy pen when assembled, not very visually appealing.
More pictures to come as this project progresses with more attempts.
