    Does the piano part of the cap really work? Looks ideal for, say, a pitch-perfect cricket in Times Square.

    Very nice, Jon. Looks like you did a great job on it.

    I've got a friend who collects anything keyboard related, and I keep debating whether to make him one of these. Based on my most recent pen-making adventures, I'm not sure I want to risk the cost for a pen I quite likely will mess up.

    Jon,
    Nicely done. Did you have any trouble fitting the holly in? I've made several of these and always seem to have to fuss with it to make it fit in. BTW, I just finished one of his "Stars and Stripes" pens and that went together rather nicely.

    You did a beautiful job. Despite the high cost and complexity of those blanks, they have proven quite popular.
    A pen like that should bring a good price.

    They are frequently shown on the pen turning forums. These are made by

    The kits come in a bunch of itsy-bitsy-teensy-weenie pieces which must be assembled and glued together before turning and finishing.
    Kinda pricey, IMHO, about $35.00 and up per kit.

    Hey Frank,

    I agree to pricey! Wife covinced me to get one, said it would sell... if not it would be a good thing to have at the booth for people to come and look at it. Well, we sold it for $95.

    Go figure.
