Really a beautiful box and pens. How was the name done and colored? It looks to be silver. TNX

Hi Ron, the name wasn’t engraved with a laser and then back filled with a silver acrylic paint. The engraver masks the burn area with a special tape which prevents the silver from bleeding out. To be honest the pictures don’t do his work justice. It looks fantastic.

Nice box and Pens! Trying to get a little cross out of the shop so I can start making more Pens and matching boxes!
Lots of Walnut, Maple and Oak scraps!
