    I know the pics are great, my cell phone The other camera has died, so that is all I have for now.

    LV Fat Cigar pen kit.

    Not bad stuff to turn at all, I'm pleased, and this pen has some serious heft to it

    Cheers!

    Nice-looking pen, Stu. Is that some of the ironwood from Barry Richardson? Wherever it's from, it looks sweet.

    That is a beauty Stu. Great looking pen and looks like it will fit the hand well.

    Stuart, for the first one, it's a very nice one, for sure not a cigar Frank

    Cool pen!, I've been waiting to see some of the handiwork from you guys with that wood. I find the wood is quite well behaved in turning, the only thing I don't like is the smell and the dust. Keep em coming! Barry

    Nice Pen Stu.. I like the cigar.. it's a fun pen to make...

    It's hard to get a really good look at your pen though.. it gets lost in the back ground.. blends into the log

    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Very nice pen, Stu!
    I don't care much for the log, though.
    I hope you can do something to make it look better.
