I just posted this video to my YouTube channel showing how I make a Bolt Action pen for DIY Tyler out of some cross cut spalted maple I stabilized and dyed orange.

I love the way this pen came out and am super happy with the blank, the cross cut maple looks amazing! Let me know what you guys think! Check out some of my other videos and subscribe while you’re there, thank you for watching!

That’s a beautiful looking pen Matt. I love the colors. I have to learn how to stabilize wood soon.

I’d be interested in a video on how you stabilized and dyed the blank. It really looks nice.
