I haven’t posted anything in a while, although I have been lurking and keeping up on some of the great projects many of you have been posting.

I’ve also been busy building up to higher level of pen and bowl inventory for all the various special occasions throughout the year and a holiday shopping season that’s going to be here before I know it.

I created over a dozen new pen during the month of May including these Laser-Inlay pens (along with a bunch of acrylic ones of a different style). This was my 2nd go-around with laser inlays and I’m pretty impressed with the way they came out. Some from my first round are in the re-do stage so I’ll have to show them after I clean up my mess ups :)... I think this group came out really nice and I’ve even had a custom order come about for a variation of the Bald Eagle pen in the middle. So here’s my latest:

Those pens look great. Too bad it’s not real easy to create the inlays.

Beautiful Pens!! I haven’t tried making any of these, do you purchase you Laser Inlay as Kits or do you do your own?

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks guys, I wish I was equipped to create my own inlays. Maybe some day… In the meantime, I have to purchase the cut & dyed pieces from one of a couple different suppliers, then put the pieces together glue it all solid and then turn everything as I would a normal wood body. Then sand & finish, normally using a CA finish to provide a hard, protective shell.

Wow, I have nothing but great respect for anyone who can do this and so elegantly! I can see why the bald eagle is so popular. It is gorgeous.

-- JoeR Nothing that I could make will ever be perfect but I'll use it anyway.

Beautiful work. I’m a newbie at making pens… so frustrating. I keep giving them away, I have made a few out of wood that are wonderful but the acrylic pen are driving me crazy. I guess try, try, again… hopefully i’ll get the hang of it… your pens are great and a great inspiration… thanks for putting them for all to see. It gives me more to strive for… thanks again. :P
