Default Kit-less pen in copper shade Woodshed poly resin blank.

This pen took me more time than usual due to a breakage at the barrel threads. Unlike my normal 13 mm OD and 10 mm ID for the barrel ( meaning 1.5 mm wall thickness at the plain part and less by 0.8 at the threads), I had tried to make 10 mm ID and 12 mm OD for the barrel to make a slim pen ( means less than 0.8 mm at the thread part); the poly resin material did not sustain.
So finally incorporating a tan ebonite coupler saved the situation. Hope the colour is not too mismatch!.
Jowo 6 nib unit and Schmidt k5 converter.
The barrel end is stepped down to fit the cap, idea similar to Parker 25, sans the sharp change of diameter.
Compared size with a Parker Sonnet.
My stock of Woodshed poly resin blanks have come to an end, only one light shade remaining now. These blanks has been a pleasure to work with, I would buy some of this material again.
This blank has the colour of fire from a furnace, does appeal much to me somehow.
I hope you like the design, welcome comments and criticism.
