    Where do you get you veneer from? I cant seem to find it here.
    Legend I get it here. Exotic Wood Veneer, Vacuum Press Systems, Veneering Tools and Veneering Supplies

    Silver I reread the post and it was a little vague. So, here is a fast explanation. Cut the blank in half lengthwise using a wavey pattern. Glue in a piece of veneer. Next day make another wavey lengthwise cut and glue in another piece of veneer. Day 3 turn the blank 90 degrees and repeat steps 2 more times. If you have more questions please ask.

    However I won't object if you want to buy some.

    So a neighbor knocked on my door at 3a.m. 3a.m.!!!!!!! Luckily I was already up playing the bag pipes.

    Funnily enough, I just did something similar at the weekend, but using an irn-bru can. Will try and post a picture later, but even then it doesn't look as good as these!

    Interesting set of blanks and they don't look too complicated to make.

    Very nice blanks indeed. Lucky I bought a scroll saw for a fiver then at Neil's bash in York.

    Brilliant work Terry. They make some really cool looking pens. Reminds me of pinstripes on a hotrod!
    It was on fire when I got here

    Terry, after seeing your pens on the WOW site I had to investigate further and found this pen turners site which by the way I like very much. Your pictures are worth a thousand words and I want to give this a try.
    Great job on the pens and congrats on making the WOW cover.
