    Mack's Knot

    Dressed in a Sierra Chjrome Click.
    This another one of the blanks I received from Mack C as a result of trading for some pen kits.

    The knot is made from sandwiched pickguard that Mack got from Lyle Walden (lwalden) on IAP, and is available as well from many of the US pen kit suppliers. This particular sandwich comes in many colours and is .0935" th. X 1" w X 5" L.

    I finished with 6 coats of CA Only.
    As always comments and or suggestions appreciated.
    Thanks for looking.

    Very nice! How do you apply the CA as a finish? For that matter, in this context is CA still cyanoacrylate (i.e. superglue)?

    Hi Mark; Not Les, but I'm sure he won't mind me answering for him.

    Yes CA, as in what you said!

    Go here and see William do it!

    It feels great to sell a pen,
    It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

    If your presence doesn't make an impact;
    Your absence won't make a difference!
