Maybe I should have listened better when friends told me pen making is addictive. This is just a slimline made from Padauk but features an aluminum Celtic Knot. Comments and suggestions always welcome as I still consider myself a beginner.

Very nice how did you glue the wood to the aluminum? Epoxy?

The aluminum was old leftover siding from my house that fit my band saw kerf perfectly.. I sanded the paint off and then cleaned it with lacquer thinner. Medium CA glue and accelerator. You have to be a bit careful sanding because the metal can discolor the wood.

Charles, I like the brass idea and may have to make a trip to the hobby shop tomorrow. My band saw leaves a kerf of about .033 so I need to find something close to that. I like to find things that I already have and re-purpose them. One thought would to be cut a short piece of a copper water pipe length wise and then flatten.

Very nice. I especially like the metal. I should try a celtic knot.

Celtic knots are usually single unbroken strands. They follow the over/under rule, but there are many examples where this rule may be violated occasionally in a design.

Here is a link to a fairly simple design:

Here are two more modern designs. The first seems to follow the rule but the second violates it a couple of times.
