This was my first inlay pen kit and it was pretty easy. Some of the parts are very small, but with tweezers worked out fine.
Did not use any turning tools. The material is soft and I just sanded with 120 grit to the bushings. Sanded up to 600 grit and then used 5 or six coats of super glue and used some sanding pads for acrylic and you can see the result.
Very pleased with this pen and the Manhattan mechanicals.

Great looking pen, my doctor neighbor will love it.
I was very happy with the blank quality and construction. I've made a few inlay pens; they have all gone together well. For a first timer, on inlays, I'd recommend starting with a simpler style and less parts to fit.
My only suggestion to Rockler is to list other pens kits that this and other inlays would work with, there are many 3/8" tube pens.

Makes a nice pen
I really like the design, I’m making it for my Dr. (kissing up, lol) anyway, I could not put them little tiny parts in, so I filled the holes with turquoise dust and CA glue, came out nice though.

Great inlay kit
I made six of these for the nurses and surgeons that took such great care of me. The small parts are a pain, but they give you extras. Try using a little saliva on the small parts and they will slide in easier. Magnifying glass is a must for us older gents.

I had very good results from this blank set. It came together as described. It requires some evaluation of the parts and an instrument for handling the small parts. I did some praying before beginning the assembly! It worked well by gluing over the assembled blank. I look forward to using this kit again. The person I made the pen for wa quite happy with it.

Great pen
It took me quite awhile to complete this pen. At first I had some doubt about the pen, and fitting the tiny parts into the blank is indeed a challenge. but the completed pen is very nice. I will make more of the medicine logo pen. My daughter is a paramedic, and teaches first aid and CPR. My wife wants this one, so I will make one for my daughter. I am 76 years old, and if I can do it you can too. A word to the wise, Read the instructions, yeah right, but that made a major difference in the ease of assembly. A lot of wood must be sanded off the ends for the brass tube to fit. Take your time it is well worth the effort.

Inlay looks like 1 piece. Do I have to cut the smaller pieces out of the inlay?
Thomas P on May 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Thomas - You do not have to cut anything for this inlay. Let me warn you, I ordered two of these and did not complete either one of them. There are tiny little pieces you are suppose to insert into the emblem...it became very frustrating for me (and time consuming) Both times I decided it was not worth the effort and discarded the inlays. If you like a time consuming challenge this is the inlay for you.

I've never done an inlay, After inlay parts are glued in, do I need to then turn to needed size or just sand and finish?
David H on May 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They do need to be turned to size, but I generally just use a very coarse grit sandpaper to get them to shape and size for the pen. No sense risking chipping out the little parts with a skew or scraper. The wood is soft enough that they sand down pretty quickly.
What size tube does the kit fit? looking for 3/8
Lee F on Apr 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: These are designed to fit the "Manhatten" pens, which is a 27/64s barrel. I have done several of these. It is a bit difficult to get the tiny inlay pieces in the proper slots so the Cadueces, but they are very nice when done with a cyanoacrylate finish.
