Default Custom Grevillea Stylus

I wanted a thicker pen than the standard Slimline, so I made a custom centre band out of some 316 stainless, its 11mm or 7/16" diameter.

The wood is some unknown type of Grevillea that I collected from beside the road, they had knocked some trees down to widen the road, I just can't drive past good wood

2 coats of thin CA, and Hut Wax.

Thanks Peter. Any tree laying on its side is fair game I reckon.

Not sure I like the look of the extended stylus, but it serves a purpose I guess.

The center band looks like it was designed with the pen. Beautiful work! Excellent.
