Yesterday I did some art decco style slim pens. Just like the regular slim pen but the front tube is longer about 1/4" longer for the lower blank. Sorta sucked because I have all my blanks premade so I had to make some more. Got them from wood crafter didn't know about the longer blank until they came home in the book the measured the same as the other ones. So they sent me a inconvence not with the directions. Over all I'm going to start making these in my line of pens. Had no luck with cigar pens so they are out . Have to make a new work shop pencil lost mine it's there somewhere. Bought a extension bed for my rikon lathe didn't use it yet but there will come a day when I will.
