Nice work with the hexa-Celtic .... and I love your bandsaw !!!

Don't ASK ... I might lie. Don't TELL me ... Iíll forget. But if you SHOW me I might remember; and if you INVOLVE me Iíll probably get it.

here's the completed pen top, the knot is pretty awesome if I may say so myself!!
have to remember for the next bunch that hexagonal pieces don't fit in a 4 jaw chuck properly!! I had to align the semi-turned piece with a dial indicator to drill the 7mm hole

as a side, just picture all those tiny pieces of maple between the walnut "slices"!!
