Beautiful work. I don't have the patience it takes to create something that complex. It's a fantastic job.

Very cool. I've been reading up on some of the Cigar kit modifications from the IAP Resources. It seems to be quite a versatile kit style. - Dave

I have made quite a few of these and have decided that doing triple knots, though impressive, always looks a bit crowded unless you possibly team it up with a single knot on the opposite side. I like how that design frames the triple knots. I'll find a picture...

This does look really nice. You are right about being crowded. I tried the triple on a 2" blank and it looks good while the blank is still 3/4" diameter but when it gets turned down, not so hot. Do you happen to remember how thick your inserts are? I like the colors. Thanks for sharing.

I spent more time working on this blank document that it took to make the pen. I hope this answers all the questions. Still have questions , please message me.

I'm using a 10" Rikon bandsaw and my actual blade thickness is always less that the kerf because ooff the set on the teeth. My .014 cuts a .020 kerf for example and my .025 thick blade cuts about .030. I usually pick my blade by the thickness I want the inserts. I do have a friend that took the set out of the teeth to thin the blade kerf with mixed results.
