    Conway Stewart/ bog oak

    Thanks for all the comments on an earlier pen.

    I was half way through making this one, so some of the feedback has been incorporated, some hasnít but will be on the next one

    So - thread shortened, nib sunk further into the section. There is still the cut behind the barrel thread, Iíve tried to add in some contrast between the wood and Acrylic blank.

    I found the bog oak tough to work with but love the deep black - it will polish up well.

    13 mm .75 barrel thread and 15 mm max diameter cap and barrel.

    As always, feedback most appreciated.

    Looking good Tony. Seems to be a much better relationship between section and barrel on this one

    Very nice, there's a lot of work gone into that, I hate polishing dark colours
