Default Ok you guys convinced me...

Decided to try my hand at multi material pen blanks. Assembled this on the tube with epoxy. Turning .09" hard aluminum is not my idea of fun. Alas I screwed up the assembly with a bone headed move so I'll just have to keep this one. Just have the cell phone photo for now. Spalted mango center, aluminum bands, Koa end pieces.

That is a striking pen.

Well Tim, I'm looking for the flaw... Nope! I see none. But we all know our own works better than others.

Very nice! Excellent segmenting, and the proportions are good in my opinion.

Thank you for sharing.

I think he just wanted an excuse to keep the pen for himself
That's right I'm fat. Deal with it.

You're right. Horrible pen. Disaster. Please mail to PO Box 45, Scio, NY for prompt disposal.
(We are often our own worst critics. I think you can chalk this one up as a success. Great pen.)

Thanks guys. The bottom wasn't completely flush so I disassembled it and in the process flattened a portion of the pen with my pen press. I hid it under the clip. Plus it's still not fully flush. I had to laugh that I nailed the blank only to screw up on the most basic things.

Great pen. Very well conceived. The kit and the blank go very well together. The aluminum bands accent the wood in harmony with the kit.

Very nice. Can't see anything wrong with it. How much trouble was it to turn the aluminum? Or....how did you turn it along with the wood?
