Default 2 "Martin" Cigars (new pic added)

I was so impressed with his cigar pens I had to try it. Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery! I'm a cigar lover so this was right up my alley.

The first one I made was out of Red Mallee and buckeye burl. The second one is made out of Claro Walnut and buckeye burl. I used churchill parts. I sanded through 600 grit. I really didn't want much shine to the pens at all but I did want a finish on them. So I just put a few coats of renaissance wax on them. Next time I go to the local cigar shop I will have them in my pocket for a conversation starter. Thanks Martin for leading the way with your creativity. Thanks for looking and letting me know what you think.

Cigar stuff seems to be really catching fire, (joke). Me and two of my cousins have been saving cigar bands for a long time now and I bet I have 100's of them. If some of you guys want a few bands to work with PM me. If you send me a self addressed stamped envelope I will mail you back some bands. You can give me a list of what labels you want. If I have them I will send them to you.

Those are nice, I like the idea of a matt finish, but I'm not sure that Renwax will offer much protection from skin oils and sweat, but for now they sure look good.

Actually I'm not sure either. I have never used it by itself. I suppose I could always reapply it. Any other ideas??

Very nice work. They get more realistic looking all the time. When is some one going to come up with one that has smoke coming out of it?
