I turned my first cigar kit this evening and I must say, I really like the kit. The blank is Honduran Rosewood.

I have to agree, the wood looks fantastic.
I like the size and weight of the cigar too, though lately I’ve been using that last jr gent I made and really like the feel of that kit.

Great first cigar Grant. I have not tried to turn one of these yet. They intrigue me though. I like the idea of thicker wood for some blanks, possible even a corn cob. You have inspired me – Thanks.

Wow! I would have thought you turned it from an acrylic. Really outstanding pop to the grain. Terrific job finishing it.

Those Cigar kits are very popular at my office. It’s a larger pen, but for a larger hand, so the guys in my office love them.
