Still working out the kinks on the alumalite casting of waste wood. Waste wood meaning just about any scraps laying around so that when you pour the resin around it, part will be all resin and part will be all wood. You spend a few hundred for the tools and materials, but these blanks sell for $20 or more a piece, or at least that is how to try to justify it to the wife.
Really having fun with this, the sky is the limit, or your imagination at least. Guys are making some true art in some of these.
This one still has a ca finish over it because its still half wood. Got some new ca finish bushings which hugely help the problem of having to un stick your pen from the bushings, and possibly damaging it in the process. They are conical white delron, and hardly nothing sticks to them, and the conical shape created a natural breaking point for the ca as you wipe it across the blank.
Any tips or critiques would be appreciated.
