As a GIS (Geographic Information Systems) professional, I knew I had to have the pen blank to make this as soon as I saw them. Clearly, I’m referring to the Dyed green Box elder and blue cast polyresin.
The third pen is a Sierra outfitted in Stabilized Buckeye Burl.

Hi Gary,

One word of caution I would like to add before you start making these pens is that pen making has been found to be addictive. Proceed with great caution.

Have fun.

Scott, it’s too late for Gary, he caught the bug a long time ago!

Gary those came out really cool! Do we see one of those pressure pots in your future?

Thanks y’all.
Scott, if you peek at my projects you’ll see I’ve already been hooked. ;)
Darryl, I think a pressure pot for casting is surely in my future. It opens many possibilities.

Great job. A fews year back, I was in the woodcraft store in Pleasant Hill, Ca when I notice a homemade blank from one of their customers. The salesman said it was a malee burl and cast in blue resin. When I got home, I made it into a cigar pen. When I turned the barrel of the pen, it look just like the Hawaiian Islands. The next week as I was traveling, I pulled it out on the plane and the guy next to me said I do not know how much, but I want that pen. We’ll he got it and I am just sad I never took a picture of it.
