Very nice work. I tried blowing up your pictures to see if I could find the kitchen sink. Did you run out of room or did your wife say you couldn’t have it?
Thanks Kenny, the kitchen sink is in the case but I had to remove the taps...... 😂😂

Thanks Mal, it's 9/16" for the cap and 15/32" for the barrel. The outer diameters ended up being 16mm cap and 15mm for the barrel (sorry for mixing up measurements) so the cap doesn't have much left left when turned down but I needed the tube inner diameter to take the insert, cap thread and section

This is awesome! You have come up with a very unique color scheme that works so well! Did you make the hardware (the red tubing)?? I am just trying to understand your process as I would like to make a kitless pen sometime.

Thanks mate, yes I made the tubing and threads etc. Hope you have fun on the "kitless pen" adventure 👍

It should be noted, the amount of work involved in making this pen should not be taken lightly. And I don't. I commend you on your execution on detail, and creating a masterpiece. Very well done Eric.

Having made several 360 herringbone blanks I know how much work and especially time is involved. I love your pen, your choice of materials and the execution is awesome. Thanks for sharing.
Do a good turn daily!
