These are some really nice pens! I am assuming that you sell them because I see that you have the nice display stands. I think that the first one pictured with the laminated woods is my favorite. How did you laminate the first pen like that?

The acrylic stands are not very expensive. The wooden stand is just a scrap of curly maple that I routed a groove to hold the pen.

The first pen is lamated with 12 wedges of wood. Gluing the wedges together forms a round pen blank. If each of the wedges are the same size, it is easier to drill the center to prepare the pen. To calculate the angle needed for the wedge, divide 360 by the number of stripes desired. For example, there are 12 stripes in this pen. Therefore, each wedge is 30 degrees (360 / 12).

I do sell many pens. Pens 1, 2 and 3 are still in my inventory, ready to sell. The other pens were customer orders. Thank you for your compliments.
