Having fun with different materials and slim line kits.

The first pen is a nickel .308 cartridge with deer antler in chrome
The second pen is a nickel .308 cartridge with deer antler in gun metal
The third pen is a brass .308 cartridge with Indian River Buffalo horn with Snakewood accents in gold.

These were fun to make (once I got the smell out of the shop….)

I keep hearing that lathing horns is smelly business. I have not done but wanted to try this, hope that the smell does not linger to bad. Might wait till spring so I can open up the shop.

I’m just getting started in this whole woodworking thing. I’m anticipating buying a lathe to learn how to turn pens. I really like your design here. My brother-in-law served over 20 yrs in the military and I would to be able to learn how to make a pen like this to give to him. Any pointers?

Have your say...
