Default Modified "Long Boy"/wood128

Needed a break from my own blanks, so I went back to some helpful threads on how to modify the "Long Boy" Kit to allow a nice display for a special blank.

Thanks Mal and Dan - Your info was very helpful: Quintet of Long Boys (Berea kit)

The blank I used was crafted by Joe Schneider, and is ava from Exotic Blanks.

Thanks for all the kind words everyone!

My wife has carried one of Joe's "Random Segmented" pens and evidently has gotten compliments, so she asked for me to quite hoarding my blanks and turn her a few more. So this one got claimed quickly and I have 4 more of different designs to turn.

When the alignment at 15/16" in diameter looks good, it is no guarantee that it will retain its alignment at bushing diameter. This one came out great.

Nice job Joe.

Very nice Mark! I'm sorry I missed the part that identifies the material used. The segmenting is awesome. Thanks for the links.
