I think you did quite a nice job on that pen.

I am not a fan of the Executive, and I think your pen shows why ... the material ends up too thin particularly near the ends ... and I think we can see the brass tube showing through with that semi-translucent blank.

At first I thought that the blank had some yellow in it and I was going to say that your choice of (perhaps dyed) box elder for the ends was a good match .... but I can say that anyway .... it is !

Painting the inside of the drilled hole in the blank would be strongly advised in future.

Thanks, Gary, for your remark.

Don't ASK ... I might lie. Don't TELL me ... Iíll forget. But if you SHOW me I might remember; and if you INVOLVE me Iíll probably get it.
