    Cool!

    I've done the "breaking apart" bit, but not yet the custom design in the pen blank

    Cheers,

    JT I know why it happened, a sharp stab of pain in my back resulting in a sharp stab with skew in blank.

    Thanks rummy, but I have to send out a huge THANKS to someone on here who suggested using a draughtsman chair to sit and turn, I picked one up on ebay for $38.00 and it has made my life so much better.
    But thanks rummy for your thoughts, the funny thing was that it was the only Cats blank I had and the customer was picking it and 2 others up that afternoon.
    Poor bugger got robbed of $200.00 that morning and can't make it till Friday..............woohoo. I've got two ready for the lathe, hope I at least get one finished.
    Six year old grandson is a mad keen Cats fan and is always in the shed with me and I've had some real bad luck with the Cats pens, I finally got one for him and when he saw this one he said "broke another one Pa" and laughed.

    Could not have happened to a better team go the bombers

    Pity. It always happens to the pens that have a deadline.
    I hope your customer is happy with the end result.
