Dale ; Very nice craftsmanship on the knot !! I would keep this pen to remind you of what not to do next time. My C&C. I personaly think these knots looks much better on a single barrel pen. It gives the pen more ballance. Second, I always add a black strip to one side of the filler material to give the knot a shadow line and a little depth. Just my way of doing it. Jim S

Default Thank you for your suggestions.

Thanks Jim S. for the comments, I will consider both. As of yet I have not turned any one piece pens, it's on the list. I will be trying a double or triple layer in my knots also but just haven't advanced that far yet. I've only been actively turning since March and still have a lot to learn and try. Both will have to wait because I've shut my shop down due to the cold. I have neither heat or insulation out there in the Garage, I'd like to do something about that next spring. I have a large garage and would have room for an enclosed shop, truck, and car. It was never an issue until I retired.

I think it looks good Dale.
Put it away for a week or two and then look it it again.
You my see it differently and like it more.
I'm scratching my head here, trying to figure out the 6-ring thing.
Did you turn the blank round first and then set up a fixture? I understand getting 8 by knocking of the corners of a square blank...but 6? Whanna help me out here?

Thanks for your input Dale.
I followed the instructions in the library for the most part. The main difference was I marked my blank with my indexer on the lathe instead of the small paper circle, much easier if you have that option. I used the 30 minute epoxy, let it set up for an hour and then saw the next slot. Drilled the blank on the lathe. I also used my bandsaw sled for the cutting and small clamps to hold the blank in place. I'd love to see yours when it's finished.

Hi Dale,
You should take a lot of pride in a very well crafted 6-ring CN.
