well done - great piece of carving - you can see why we've had this love affair with mahogany for so long, and it goes well with ss. Have you copied a known shape of advertising material? - or is this your own creation?

 

I see acres of PM biros, but for some reason don't see their fountain pens.

Thank you for kind words.

The shape is my own, logo and text is from Parker.

That is a beautiful piece of wood, and the design is nice and simple. How did you finish it?

 

I tried to make a pen holder for a Parker desk pen [no cap], and even with a tapered hole the pen would dry out in a day. Coating the surface of the tapered hole didn't seem to help. so I bought a lovely, simple, black onyx bas for the black pen. Now it doesn't dry.

Baptiste knew how to make a short job long

For love of it. And yet not waste time either.

Thank you, it was three coats Danish oil and one coat clear wax.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
