A fancy desk set with a 10-3/4” long twist pen in a brass funnel and brass posts to hold business cards or Post-It Notes. The Curly Koa base is 9” x 2” x 1” thick. I had a bit of trouble with this long slender pen vibrating on the mandrel and it came out twisting off-center. My solution was to hand sand the mating center edges and substitute a smaller center band, which worked admirably well. Whew, what a relief! I’m still waiting for the day I can turn something beginning to end without having to ‘fix’ something!
