    What you could do with is a CNC - then you’d get it done in no time

    Yes , that would make some beautiful pens , you'll have to build a lathe once you are done with the CNC ;):D:lol:

    Glued this up last night and trimmed it today - parting is such sweet sorrow ... I won't be able to work on it for a week as I'll be on a beach holiday. I know, but try and hold back the tears for me.

    Anyway, it shouldn't get lonely - looks like there's something inside (just some old borer holes but it does give it some personality!)

    Hehe, Dave, don't tell anybody but the joke's on him. He hasn't noticed that it's the freaking dead of winter. He must not have a TV or radio, cuz he's missed the Cyclone Snow Bomb or whatever the hell they're calling that thing--he'll freeze his baguettes off when he gets there, and have to brush off the snow from his blue, frozen skin to get a tan.

    Probably wondered why he got such a great rate on the beach rental . Ha, ha. and NO--don't try that nonsense on me about being on the other side of the world so it's warm. Even here in the Sunny South (of the USA, that is), my thermometer said 12 degrees, Fairinheat, which is even colder than Centrograde. Its obviously what the meterologists call "colder than hell" all over everywhere.

    I'm working on a few things today.

    Got the F holes roughed out on the walnut/mahogany commission.

    [​IMG]

    And started working on more pens. A local high-end men's store ordered a dozen, and we're doing some twist pens, rollerballs, and some fountain pens. We're doing them out of local old structures, and I'm trying to figure out how to prepare the blanks. Since they're all pine or douglas fir, they won't be terribly interesting if I do them as a normal pen. Then I thought I'd use a technique to accentuate the grain to make them look like they did when they were weathered on the side of the barn.

    Not sure if I like it or not, though. I think it's pretty cool and helps the wood tell its story, but my wife said she prefers smooth pens.
