    A few Celtic Knot pen blanks

    Getting ready for the Midwest Penturners Gathering next month. I have been putting together Celtic Knot pen blanks for the last month to build up my inventory. At the same time I have been stabilizing as well. The gathering is a pretty small venue but we always have a great time visiting and watching demos.

    Those are really nice, Terry. They should do well at the gathering.

    Good stuff - what do you use to cut the really small ones? Those are some fine little slices (unless you're doing the cut all the way through method - in which case you're glue up alignment is impressive).

    Terry, very nice blanks indeed. I demonstrated my Beall Pen Wizard at the MPG years ago. Great group of people and an excellent time. Haven't been to TPS in a long time.

    Nice job Terry, Those really require some precision on both the cuts and especially drilling the holes.

    You look like you have it mastered! Well done!
