Default Slimline Knot Try

This was my first attempt at a pen with a knot inlay. The barrel is honey locust and the inlay is mesquite. I was fairly happy with the knot, but the finish I was having issues with. This was also my first attempt at a CA/BLO finish. didn't turn out very well....guess I just guess I have to keep on trying.

accentuate the positive! The fit looks darn good. and if the rest is not as nice, all that means is try again! Still looks better than my first attempt at a knot. It never made it that far! I've tried a couple but until my new chucks get here hopefully next week, I couldnt get a perfectly centered hole.
It's true hard work never killed anybody, but I figure, why take the chance?

Thanks a lot! I did a lot of reading before I tried to do this. Took a lot of tries to get my inlays to be the right size.
