    That works, love the way the lines in the blank follow through to the design in the kit... Very nice.. Nice character in the blank too.... Well done

    Eamonn, sorry, it might just be because it is monkey puzzle, I don’t know, but I don’t like the stuff, never have done, think it’s ghastly stuff. You have done a mighty fine job of polishing the proverbial turd! But a turd is always a turd!

    Yep, agree it’s not the nicest of stuff and many would say it’s best chucked on the fire.

    But whatever the customer wants they get. (They haven’t seen it yet so may think the same as you when they do)

    Never tried to turn Monkey Puzzle but it looks OK on this pen. I too am in two minds about the kit.

    I like the wood, the grain matches the kit.
