Here's my first attempt at a closed end pen. The body wasn't long enough after cutting the portion for the cap, so I improvised and added the white chip resin on the ends.

Looks a little like a magic wand with the white caps. Otherwise I'm happy with it,

Thank you Mark. I found your thread with the links all in one location and used that for reference. I liked watching the changes over your learning period too!

Beautiful pen Lewis. I think the end are very appealing.

Oh my, some of them were pretty butt ugly! But enough lessons were slapped on my face to eventually work most out.

I'm of the "Home Depot" school... Buy it, install it, tear it out. Buy another, install it, tear it out. Repeat until it's close to correct, and return all that I can. (The last part doesn't work for my pens :frown:).

Excellent Work Lewis,
Obviously not as easy as one imagines.
Great recovery, with the clear crystal ends.
I look forward to seeing your next one.
Congratulations,
Brian.
