I hope you all aren’t getting tired of my pens. This one will probably be the last for a while and it will be making a home on my desk. This one is another Artisan Clicker with an Oak body. The knots are Padauk, Jatoba, and Purple heart. One of the trickiest things about this is drilling a 4” long 3/8” hole down the center of 12 segments and not have the whole thing blow apart. I was turning it round within 15 minutes of my last CA glue joint and drilled it immediately after I got it turned round. The tool of choice this time was a very sharp roughing gouge at an angle taking shear cuts and the skew to finish it off. Hope you like it.
