I was asked to help a good friend make these 2 pens for a great family in the neighborhood. A couple of their boys play high school sports and these are for the baseball team dinner & auction. Its this Saturday in West Jordan UT 1/15/14.
Both pens are Chrome Zen pen kits with great rollerball refills. The white one is made using Avonite Solid Surface Material that was tossed at work. Recycle, Reuse, Repurpose, any time I can with scraps from work the better. Saves the landfill and saves me money in materials. The other was from a Oak board that had some nice grain and worked with the decal really well.
The players donate items for a silent auction. The money earned helps the family pay the fees needed to cover the season.
Both pens have water slide decals with 8-10 layers of CA glue & sanded to 12,000 grit.
This was a fun project for a great family at a great school!!!
Which one would you bid on? The White solid surface or Oak hardwood? I like the white one the most but the oak does help the school logo pop!
