Wow, such an awesome pen, well executed, and great blank. Really love the colours. I have never done a kitless pen. Can you do everything on a wood lathe? I have no one here who can show me how to do it. Any suggestions on a step by step video showing how to do it, or something like that?

Hi Sean.

Thank you for the kind words. As for a tutorial, there are several variants in the IAP library and I believe several youtube videos. I don't have exact links at the moment, but they shouldn't be too hard to find.

Otherwise drop into the advanced forum here and read up and ask lots of questions. Happy to help in any way I can.

And yes, all of this is done on a wood lathe with tap and die for threading.

I like the shape and form. Especially like that the diameter of the cap isn't overly larger than the body, keeps the proportions really nice.

Thanks all. I love the way this one turned out...no pun intended.

I'm slowing refining a shape that I like. Each one is getting a bit closer.
