Been a while since I posted anything. Lotsa things going on. All good, but, never enough time. Anyhoo, made from Oak, plywood, and spray can of satin finish Minwax. For the desktop, a base holding a cylinder of 30 cal mini pens and a 357 likeness with the cylinder housing 30 cal mini pens. Which one do ya’ll like better? Thanks for lookin. Appreciate any good/bad/ugly comments and thoughts.

Nice work Roger!
I like the pistol because it makes a statement. Says don’t mess with me because I may have a real one close by!

Very creative and original—my vote is for the pistol as it makes a complete statement.

I like them both. The gun laying down almost looks as thought your reloading and getting ready to use it. The other one my first thought was a paper weight. Very good imagination on your part.

I agree that they are both creative ideas and would look good on any desk.

Pretty interesting display Roger. Between the two, I like the pistol best, BUT, the pair together makes an even stronger impression.
