Pen # 1 The one with the decal is made of Knotty Alder. I cut out the knot to get the cool grain for this one. The decal is for a company. He really liked the look of the wood. I explained that is a softer wood and might need extra care to make sure it doesn’t get dented or scratched. I did make sure to sand down past the diameter of the metal parts to build up extra layer of CA glue. After sanding and polishing There should still be 10-12 layers left on the pen. I like the black cap on this European kit.
Pen # 2 is made from buckeye burl (natural no dye). This is the first cigar pen I have turned. My client really liked the look of the pen on the web. I have never had a draw to the larger pens. But the weight and balance of this one is perfect! The colors of the wood and the metal go great.
Working to make a few bucks to buy more woodworking tools… for the shop garage is not considered work is it?
As always thanks for looking!
