Hm, a few trials to do first I think...but if anyone can save me some bother, all the better.

I would like to make a pen barrel with a Maltese Cross....probably ash/maple and padauk or something reddy, that is fairly irrelevant really.

To get the curved arms of the cross, I think I would need to section the blank into three, cut a wedge about half way through out of the main blank and insert a matching wedge shaped section, then repeat, at 90degrees(lengthways), then re attach the end sections....

I fear too many joints to look smart.


I did think about just a straight/square armed cross, much simpler, but not as effective....

Any suggestions?

You could print out the cross whatever size you need

Glue it to the pen blank

Then use some clear perspex rod / dowel as the blank for the pen
