It still needs several more coats of wax and a lot of buffing, but this will give you an idea of the finished piece. I think this will be the last BIG project for the summer! lol! gb
That sure would look nice here in my office :D

That is one great looking piece. It is hard to imagine turing something like that compared to my little stuff. Thas is really, really fantastic. Can't believe you have been holding out on showing the pics. We have all ben anxious to see the results. Thanks,

"...did you give it a name?"

Yes.... I named it 'Never Again'. lol!

I bet there was 40 lbs of chips, bark and sawdust that came off that thing. It still weighs 10lbs or more! My next project will be going after Bobby's little goblets. I think I can make one smaller (read: challenge to everyone!). Thanks for the compliments!

Tortuga....thanks for the bid on the Wooten Auction turning. Very nice of you!

did you screw up the kit...or just the pen blank?
LOL..you know me, Spec...nuthin' half way...I skrewed up the first and second blanks but just blasted on into it.. Cut back the bodies of the pens a little bit so they might look a little better...BAAADD Idea...then tried to jam the whole thing together...Really don't look too bad just so long as you don't TOUCH it..LOL. It is now a very short big fat pen with a slide on cap in place of the threads for the cap which I skifully snipped off while I was snipping off a little of the ink cartridge so it would fit in the newer improved pen... another Bad idea.I ain't been that frustrated in may moons..:hairout:

What was it Clint Eastwood said ???..."A man's gotta know his limitations.":D

Below is the 'evidence'...LOL
