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.

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.
