Default Still a Nice Looking Pen

I think I like your blank with the subtle graduation towards the center better than the way I did it. Mine is much more pronounced, but it would have shown even more of the brass tube if I did do it that way. I was also thinking that it might be better to use colored epoxy rather than paint for the inside of the drilled hole or the brass tube.

Those cylindrical blanks slip in the vice and you really can't keep tightening it because once you drill through to where you are holding the blank it starts to collapse an could possibly make a real mess.

That's probably a good idea giving yourself a little extra to play with.
