Default Two new "Martin Cigars"

I made these today. They are both out of walnut. Big thanks to Peter for the La Gloria band. The CAO band was from last night. I am going to have to make quite a few more because my local cigar shop wants some. I converted the cigar box to a cigar pen box for presentation of the pens.

Thanks for looking. Let me know what you think

WOW! Those are sooooo cool! I'm jealous ~ I have really got to learn how to make closed end pens like that......(no really!)

Well done,

What did you use as a satin or dull finish?

I'm making one right now and I've coated the base with medium CA which I'm planning to sand down with 600 wet and maybe a couple of the MM pads wet and see if it provides a good dull finish that's durable.

I used CA as well just as usual but instead of going all the way through the micromesh I stopped after the first two. It gave a nice satin finish but should hold up to everyday use.
