Default My Pretty Wood Long Clicker

I usually only watch the Bash, but decided this year to make a pen. I thought most would make Sierra style or Jr style pen, so I would make something different. I've always been a fan of the long clicker, as it really shows off the grain of wood. My only complaint with that kit is that it needs to be a 1/2 inch shorter to fit in your shirt pocket.



The wood I chose was a piece of Bethlehem Olive Wood I had laying around. The finish is 5 coats of thin flex ca. This was fun to make, as it's the last pen for me for a while. I'm in the process of moving into an apartment, and have no room for a lathe. But I have good friends from IAP that will allow me to swing by and use theirs :0



Again, thanks for the votes, and thanks for supporting the Bash!!

Your BOW pen is my 1st pick...nicely made and finished, and a stunning piece of BOW.
Glad you entered with such a great pen. Sorry to learn you will no longer have shop space though

I voted for this one too. The wood is awesome, and one of my favorites. You did a nice job on this one Ernie.

I think the grain turned out nice. Not bad for a guy that doesn't turn much anymore!!
