Not a pen this time.
There is some interesting history behind this cigar shape. The foot end is a rounded square.
This is myrtle burl with a modified toothpick holder. You have storage in both ends but I wouldn’t store the toothpicks with the matches. This picture is just for illustration.
Thanks for looking! I’m still having fun!

Pretty Cool, I like the color of the Myrtle burl. Is there a kit that You can put together to store a smaller size cigar(actual) in one of these ? That would also be pretty cool ! Thanks for sharing.

Rob, interesting idea. The largest tube I use takes a 12.5mm bit so the tube would be about 12mm inside diameter. Then the hardware takes up some of that so the cigar would have to be very thin.

These are even cooler than the cigar pens you made. Do you sell these?

Marty, these are just one-of-a-kind right now. I am trying to see what will work and what won’t.
If you have a lathe and do turnings then PM me and I could explain some of the steps.
One of the things I do is make tooling to do the closed ends and bushings for turning between centers.
Right now I use brass and plastics and make them on the wood lathe. Maybe someday I’ll invest in a metal lathe.
I have some of the pens on Etsy but there doesn’t seem to be much interest…or the price is too steep!
