What part isn't working? Blowing out or what?

I thought I wanted a career, turns out I just wanted paychecks.

Pine cone pens

The pens do not have much lift once the are drilled , I have tried using epoxy they still do not stay on the sleeve ,then they blow out when I turn them

What about cutting off as much excess as possible with the bandsaw first?
