Default New project

Playing with a Gisi(ish) style pen blank, started off simple enough made of walnut, white oak, padauk and maple. I didn't want to waste an expensive kit on an experiment, so built it on a simple cigar kit in titanium. I like the way it turned out and will do the other blanks I have left over on some better kits.

Nice pattern on the segmenting of the blank. Got that on my to-do list.

How do you cut the perfect "V" in the block at the top end of your blank ?

I cannot see any join in that piece, although I can in the smaller V-ed pieces.

Beautiful. No need to underestimate your skills. Go for a high end kit next time.

I have never done any of this design.

But... I have viewed, many, many, many of this design - and yours is MUCH more precise than others that are thought to be "well done."

Ya dun well!!!

Very NICE!
