    Here's one I made last summer. It has a little G&G inspiration. One change I would make is I wish I would have added a cloud lift on the bottom front and sides. If I build another I'll do that. The dang sapwood showing in the fingers still bothers me too!

    Chuck,

    Here's one I posted here a while back. It's Aromatic Cedar throughout. I used coved, bracket feet to add a little pizzazz to it.

    For each foot, I box jointed two 6/4 x 7" x 4 1/2" pieces together and then coved them on the tablesaw, taking two passes per foot to do both sides. After they were coved, I used a template to mark them on the back side and cut out the shape on the bandsaw. The top portion was then rounded over with a block plane and the saw marks sanded out of the cove using a spindle from my OSS.

    I've got an auxiliary fence that I made to get the same cove angle every time and a 1/2" box joint jig to join the brackets. Works great.

    Hi Chuck; Here's a few I did before I became addicted to penturning. All came from plans with some of my changes.

    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!
