Well, this is the forth attempt and I finally got a decent Celtic Knot pen. The pen is the Cigar style (my favorite), the materials are Cocobolo and Maple. Now that I’ve accomplished it I will probably make a few more for gifts, but won’t make too many more. I don’t think people will be willing to pay the extra money for all of the effort it takes to make one. I do see some nice little boxes and some Rolling Pins with the Celtic Knot in my future though.

Exceptionally nice Bill…Have you figures out how much you would have to sell it foe to be a worth while project?

Thanks everyone for the kind words – I am quite happy the way it turned out.

Roger and Donna – it was actually pretty easy once I found this Tutorial by Bill Young. I followed it exactly and it worked out perfectly.
