This is my latest pen. It’s a Satin Nickel cigar with Sapelle, two differing thicknesses of hard maple veener, and coke can:

There’s a couple of things I’ll do differently next time, but overall I’m not to unhappy with it.

All comments and criticisms welcome.

Your a master turner at that Gary, thankyou very much for sharing. When I try, I can say there will be very limited frustration, I just might turn into a master too with experience.

Have your say...
