Scott Greaves Inspired Slimline Pen , pics

Jim Shaver Oakville, Ont
>Hello,

I tried a new twist on a standard slimline twist pen this morning and thought Id share my results with you. This kit is the titanium Slim Twist pen kit from Lee Valley, I took the kit and on inspiration from some pens I have seen turned by Scott Greaves I replaced the center gold band with a wood band.

The woods are curly maple and a snake wood band.

The finish is a poly, wax, friction polish combination of applications.

This was fun, the opportunities to add some custom accent to a pen really expand with this process as well as the chance to use up all those small cuts offs I have been saving from previous pens.

Thanks for viewing,

Take care,
Jim
