 Celebrating my 22nd anniversary of crafting  the highest quality custom writing instruments
1996-2018


New for September 2017,   I have been crafting some very interesting segmented pens over the last few weeks and have settled on a custom design that is a variation on the classic "Celtic Knot" pattern. 
I have created this unique overlapping pattern by adjusting my table saw  to a very specific angle.  Each cut through the cocobolo pen blank must be done one at a time then the insert material (this white/black/white pick guard material is used in custom guitar construction) is glued in and allowed to dry for an hour.  Then the next cut is made an a second side of the blank and the insert glue up is repeated.  So it takes four hours just to glue up the segmented blank before I can start to turn the pen on the lathe.  Each pen may have a very slight variation from the pen shown here that is already sold, due to my custom turning process.  Everything I do is by eye to maximize the final look of each pen I create.  The cost is $55 for these due to the amount of prep time and extra materials cost.

Below is the final glueup of this pen with all four segments glued in.  Now it is time to cut the blank to size on the bandsaw, drill it out in the drill press (glue in tubes then wait another hour) and finally mount it on the wood lathe.  Now for the turning fun as the segmented pattern begins to take shape!
