Beautiful Pen
This is my third Inlay pen, turning was straight forward, nothing broke, inlay blended in really well. All of the Inlay didn't sit flush and I didn't try and force it or break it, just used my CA glue
to set it, allowed plenty of time to set before I turned it. Hope this wasn't beginners luck, I already have my first order. As you can see the end result is stunning.

This one is beautiful! This was...
This one is beautiful! This was my first laser inlay and I had difficulty getting the "blank" out of the barrel part, and getting the inlay into place. I had to use the breaking method in the instructions to get it into place, but it went together so well, you cannot tell. The ebony dust fills things in nicely and makes all the detail very sharp. I was careful to note how deep the laser cuts went, which is more than halfway, but you could not turn this into a slimline. I was also pleasantly surprised there was no bleeding of colors.

Color not what I expected
I bought this kit a few days ago and finished it per the instructions. All in all it went together good, however, in my opinion there isn't enough contrast between the barrel and the inlay. The picture is a little misleading in that the barrel is much darker than the inlay. Sure I could've stained it before assembly but since this is the first time I tried this kit I wanted to keep it simple. Pen turned out ok but would've liked to have more contrast to make the inlay pop.

very nice
I had a hard time getting the hand in the barrel tube. I had to break it to get it installed but you cannot tell it was broken. A very nice kit but you do not want to turn it down to small or the black lines in the hand get turned out.

Ordered two (have used in the past) this time--difficult to get hands to fit into blank--broke 1 trying to get it together--making it unusable other I could use but very poor fit Others have insert already put in and all you have to do is glue and go!

I was very excited to turn this inlay kit. It went together very easy and turned very nicely. I read the instruction several times and when it came time for the black dust I was sad to see that all the detail had been sanded away. I made sure there was no dust built up in the laser detailing only to find out that the laser details did not go all the way through the praying hands. The finished pen was not as desirable as the product picture. Hope this was a fluke!

Check for tube fit first!
Very fragile , too small for tube, broke to pieces when trying to ream it out with sandpaper
