I've been bitten by the pen bug!
« on: January 04, 2016, 12:27:04 PM »
I've become slightly addicted to pen making.  Still love calls, but the fact that I can sit down and knock out a pen quickly and it appeals to a larger group of people really has me interested.  Just a few that I've made so far, took this picture so people could compare some of the styles.

L-R: 30 cal bolt action/bocote, tec bolt action/stacked leather, concava/ triple dyed spalted pecan, designer/cholla hybrid, slimline/spalted pecan, classic rollerball/double dyed boxelder burl hybrid, oxford rollerball/cochin rosewood

Thanks, David.  I'll probably post up a "tutorial" on how I did it.  At lease give others an idea of where to start if they want to try.
