    Trustone and Aluminum

    Another from the other side of the pond. This is Tru Stone and Aluminum (or Aluminium) depending or you choice of beverage temperatures.

    Constructing the blank was interesting... Drilling the tube hole was very interesting... And the turning was "successful."

    The theme was for a stained glass window.

    There is a curve to the finished pen. And it is slightly undercut towards the nib. This was more of a test to see "If I can drill and turn it," so I was happy when it was done.

    Very interesting job there, with a very high skill level.....I have found 'trustone' and 'Yunstone' to be very unforgiving, I have turned and polished it OK but generally crack it on assembly or shortly after....
    Again...well done

    Very well done Mark. Very nicely segmented resulting in a beautiful pen.
