Title IAP Collection - Pen #49
Description 2017 BASH Slimline Unlimited Contest - 2'nd Place Winner

Cliff Hartle (Chartle)
Date Added to Collection 3/24/2017
Maker Cliff Hartle (Chartle)
Materials Padauk/Oak Herringbone blank. All other non kit parts are painted Maple.
Components Bright Copper Slimline Kit. I used every part of the kit except the center band. New copper bands were cut from plumbing fittings.
Tools / Machinery Used Harbor Freight Lathe
Process All wooden parts turned off the tube between homemade centers, then assembled on the tubes.
Maker's Comments For most turners, well at least for me, a Sierra (Manhattan, Gatsby, etc) is the next pen made after the slimline. It's pretty straightforward burying the guts of a slimline in a thicker Sierra. I had trouble working out how to finish the cap but then decided to use the cap from the kit. It solved a problem of how to finish the top and gives you a hint of what it really is.
