This is just a trimline that takes about4 hours to build the blank. You use lots of CA and end up with burned finger tips and waste ots of glue. Hope you like it.Also, I dont know lots about posting photos, hope I did it right

So the above pictures show TWO pens ? . . I thought, by the way you worded the text, that it was only one.

Anyway, very nice work. . I can appreciate that it takes 4 hours to build the blank . . . would probably take me even longer.

I would love to see some photos of your grandfather clocks. My wife's had a grandfather that made about 20 Grandfather, a few grandmother, and several wall clocks. He did not start until age 68.
