Oh ... That is a brilliant idea! Kinda wish I had done that. I have two mode blanks so maybe I'll give that a go next time.

Thanks man!

One of the hardest parts of finishing this pen was to match up the upper and lower barrels when the top was screwed into the bottom. It took me 3 tries to get them matched.

Does anybody know a foolproof way to do this first time?

Somehow the "Like with thumbs up" symbol is missing below the article.

Great start. I really want to see where you go from here.

Wow!

I just got on after being away for a while and saw this bump.

Thanks so much for relating to my quest of a theme pen. I loved the process and really appreciated the inputs. BTW, I donated this pen to the church auction going towards missions in north Africa.

This motivates me to dream up another theme effort!
