My latest project was a fun one. It’s a Steampunk pen. What the heck is Steampunk you ask … well Steampunk is a genre of science fiction that typically features steam-powered machinery rather than advanced technology but taking place in the modern era. This is what a modern ball point pen might look like using 1800’s technology. There is no plastic here it’s all brass, copper and steel and all the tiny screws are real. The wood is Chechen which I’ve never worked with before. It turned nicely and polished beautifully. It’s a heavy pen!
