Was finally able to return to the shop after a hand injury. Here are a few from this week.

The first two pictures are two views of the same pen. This is a Gold Churchill Rollerbal, dressed out in Bethlehem Olive Wood. This one is going to one of the Associate Pastors in my church.

The next picture is a 270 cartridge topped with deer antler. This one is going to my children’s Youth Minister, who hunts with a 270.

The last is a Hornady 7mm cartridge, with real bullet for the nib, topped with deer antler. The stand is southern pine with a nicely curved antler tip. This one was a special order for the owner of the landscaping service that services my employer. I don’t like the greem background, but the blue was not available and I cannot retake the pic.

Thanks for looking.

Thanks Grizz.

I am feeling it a little right now.

The base is not heart pine. it is a resawn piece of 2×6. I thought it had an interesting grain, almost like it was quartersawn.
