Here are the next 5 pens that I’ve made, and actually my first ones without any guidance.
The two end pens are curly maple,
The second from the left is bubinga (I think)
Middle is purpleheart
Fourth one is zebrawood.
I know that these are very simplistic pens, but it is really relaxing, and the people I give them to are amazed! The middle one was for my twelve year old daughter, and for 10 seconds, I once again was the coolest guy in the world.
Now I just need to move on to the more challenging pens, styles, etc. My 7 year old son wants me to make a large fountain pen from deer, elk, or moose antler.
Can anyone direct me in a good directions on how to move forward? I would like to learn more about dying and stabilizing, and down the line, maybe casting.
