Here is my latest pen, hot off my DVR, made from a gorgeous piece of Cocobolo and wearing 5 coats of CA, chrome hardware. I like it very much but what do my online family think? Comments welcome! :)

Looks great! And so does your photo, as always! I'm still trying to figure it out (I know it's outside).

Great again Mark!

Chopped up some Cocobolo today, might have to have a go on the lathe now Ive seen what it can look like!

Nice to see your back on the lathe, as haven't seen many pens lately from the ligget workshop!

.....I suppose.:rolleyes:

The fault is ( I'm an old pro at this sort of thing:wink: ) is of course the finish!!!!

How many times do I need to tell you!!!!! The finish on the blank IS NOT supposed or even allowed to be better than the finish on the kit!!!!
Jeesh, will you EVER get it right???:mad:

Bob, set up some time and lets fly over there, we don't need an invitation, just a couple boxes of blanks should get us through.

Mark

A rare blank of Cocobolo also one of my favourite timbers.

I never hear you say how tough it is to acheive such a finish on Cocobolo that makes you the exception you prove to be.

Care for the kit , photography, layout desirable ready to sell for a Motza.

On this forum your work is standout good showing us the way indeed.

Appreciate your humility, genuine sharing, a wonderful example to me at all times.

Regards Peter.
