Default Colored pencils - "Never Again Project"

Okay, that looks easy. Everyone is doing colored pencils. Just glue some together, drill, glue, turn. Right?...

That was one of those "I had to do it once, but never again" projects. Heck, I still have second 2" Sierra blank, might never turn it.

Glueing... That was fun! (not)
Blowouts on drilling... Easy fix - just glue two pieces together, redrill. Repeat until succeed.

But turning, oh my. No matter what I did, what tools used, how sharp they were - pencils just flew off. The only thing that worked - grinding with a Dremel on a lathe. Half a year to finish that project:)

I really like the contrast of the colored lead and black.

Good looking pen. I also tried to do one, and it was a disaster. Will not be trying again.

Looks great, in a few months you will forget the trouble and turn the other blank.
