Hi all folks. Just a small project made of wood, to keep myself on track.
I´ve been out of the shop for a long period. I needed to keep close and take care of mom (90). She finally passed away last december. On January, in the middle of our summer holidays, my father in law passed away too.
To make things better, I decided to get into a hip replacement surgery,. I arrived home last monday, and just started the rehab exercises. These hurt indeed.
Back to the matter, this pen was finished in January, a birthday present for my daughter. Is made of maple with wenge laminated strips. With a small fret saw , I saw the spider legs, and filled the voids with epoxy. In total followed (so to say) the instructions from Mike Vickery´s page, where the article of Jim Boys is hosted.http://www.distinctiveturnings.com/tutorials/SegPenBlanks.pdf
I hope to get back to business promptly (which may mean loooooooong time)
Take care and thanks to stop by
-- Back home. Fernando
