LOML is out of town at a conference, so I had lots of shop time this weekend. Friday night after work, I made a Chrome Baron dressed in a Buckeye Burl and started the 308 casing pen order by picking wood for the pens and finishing one. Saturday I finished the other four casing pens. There was still a little time left to play, I mean work, so I made the Platinum Baron outfitted with an Eagle cross inlay blank of black walnut, bloodwood, and holly. All the pens are finished using Micro Mesh, oil and CA, then topcoated and buffed out with carnuba wax. The cross inlay also got a couple of sealer coats of dewaxed shellac after the MM.
And, I have the rest of today to play too.
