Very nice pens. We built our second pen yesterday, kids very happy but nothing like what you have done here. How long will the Shellawax hold up? Is this a similar product to finishing wax?

cheers

Thanks Guys you’re very kind,

John Shelllawax holds up well, It comes as a wax or Liquid, very easy.

Cheers Tony.

First let me say that is one classy looking pen. The deatil is supurb. I like the 2 tone. Can you tell us where you got that kit? I have not seen that one and what is the plating on it. Also do you have a guide for doing the herringbone pattern? I need to give that design a try. I have never done one. Any pitfalls while doing the blank or finish or assembly??? Thanks for showing.

Hello John T. thank you very much for the Compliments.
The kit I got from Timberbits in Australia but they send all over the World, the kit is Lucida-=Gold Titanium,
http://www.timberbits.com/lucida-pen-kits.html

as for the instructions of how to build the pen, A while ago I made I Video of a step by step how to make it.
It was made for My Italian friends and is in Italian but I think it’s Easy to follow have a Look and if you need more info, you could contact me by PM. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t6rjg0dwuLE
The only thing I can advise you is to start the cutting from the outer traveling to center of blank, to avoid lifting the wood fiber as you exit the blank.

Cheers Tony.
