Used 1 walnut and 1 oak pen blank.

Numbered the larger segments and glued in the exact order as cut with grain matching same direction. The thinner segments cut from the “waste” pieces. They were not numbered but glued in with grain matching as they were cut.

This is a Black Chrome Cigar Pen.

I made the upper body a tad bit thicker than I wanted and turned just a little under as well as the upper part of the lower body.

I really liked the way the wood looks in this fashion. I had actually happened upon this by accident making another pen where I had 4 out of the 5 pieces glued in the same matching grain direction without thinking about it.

CA finish applied for glossy look.

Great looking and unique Larry. Not easy to do with so many pen styles out there.

I have to admit… I sometimes get a little bored with pen posts. But there is nothing boring about these beauties! Wonderful work.

Thank you for the compliments. I plan on working on a new one soon and make the body a little better looking. I had some bushing issues with this one which created the shape I got with it. :)
