  1. Blood Orange

    With all the false starts on this pen, I should call it Blood (Sweat and Tears) Orange! I should also be proud of myself for managing to complete, what started out as a simple Osage Orange pen, that on more than one occasion should have ended up in the burn pile, not once, but three times. I...
  2. Hawaiian Milo Cigar Pen in gold

    Hawaiian Milo Cigar Pen in Gold Milo- (Thespesia populnea) is a very nice shade tree that grows by the ocean. Milo trees can grow up to 35 feet tall and 27 inches in diameter. Most milo is small nowadays all under 12 inches in diameter. The wood is a nice pink color when it is freshly cut but...
  3. realistic cigar pen

    first try at a realistic cigar pen thuya and buckeye burl with a magnetic vertex pen kit
  4. Bethlehem Olive Wood Cigar Pen

    Olive wood from the Holy Land (yes that Bethlehem). I've read about other projects made with this wood, and how it smelled like olive oil when turned. As soon as a piece finally made the rounds in the 3rd tour of the pen traders box (I love being a lumberjock!). I snagged it. Olive wood from...
  5. The Pen is Mightier

    Finally received some new pen kits, the first is Desert Ironwood (Olneya Tesota) cur a blank from box of scrap, and may have found my new favorite! This is the most incredible wood, hard to capture but the copper and gold colors are holographic inside the surrounding espresso brown heart-wood...
  6. Ultra Cigar Pen Chrome with Gold Accents

    Got a deal on a 3/4 HP Jet 12-20 for $150 and decided to start making some pens. I made about 10 pens without CA finish. The local woodcraft dealer talked me into buying Hut finishing product which I was not impressed with. After experimenting I was able to get a descent "CA" finish from many...
  7. Humble Pine Pen

    I'll admit to being a wood snob, if it isn't highly figured or exotic… it doesn't really interest me. However I found this piece of super dense (old growth) pine in the shop and was so impressed by it, I made a pen. I'm really ignorant of pine species but I believe it's what the Japanese refer...
  8. Penultimate Pentathlon for the non-Pennurious.

    Boys and Girls, While browsing through the new weekend projects here at LJ, I came across my last post about a bullet pen… Ho-hum, just another pen post… literately, not much chop for all the counless illiterate lumberjocks in search of that evasive bit of inspiration. So if you are illiterate...
  9. Plain ole wood pen

    I've been doing a bunch of pens and things that haven't been worth posting, but I felt this pen would be enjoyed by those who appreciate wood for what it can do by itself. I left the images large so you can enjoy the details nearly as much as I do. All comments and criticisms welcome. Gary
  10. Gifts To Remember Disney Trip (Fish Extender Gifts)

    On Disney cruises, there is a tradition of leaving gifts for other passengers outside their cabin door. It is a very long story, but this gift giving is known as "fish extenders" Here are a few of the gifts that we are giving on an upcoming cruise. I was told by a person that previously...
  11. Bubinga Cigar Pen

    One of my colleagues was just promoted into an account management role and I made this pen for him to help him impress his customers and close some deals. Sanded to 12,000 grit, EEE cream, Danish Oil, then some Shellawax for final finish. I really like what the Danish Oil does to the color of...
  12. Desert Ironwood Pen

    This is my first experience with desert ironwood and I love it! It's pretty hard but once finished the grain is very iridescent. The kit used is a gold and gunmetal cigar pen. The pen was finished with CA.
  13. Drill Press made Cigar Pen

    A couple years ago I decided to try my hand at making pens and invested in the various start up junk like a mandrel, pen mill set, pen press,and a couple of pen kits to find out my #2 morse taper lathe is only on the tail stock and not the head stock. At the time I figured I had spent all I...
  14. Plum crazy

    In the post of my latest project, a pen display box, is the latest pen I've completed. This a challenge even though it's not segmented or inlaid. I received a burl block from someone and it was full of cracks and inclusions that appeared similar to obsidian. Having no idea what he'd sent, I cut...
  15. Marketplace Classifieds
    Hello fellow jocks. This is my first post on this site. From looking around, it seems like a tight knit community with some very knowledgeable craftsmen. Well, here's what i have. A very lightly used Shopsmith Mark V with many accessories. A 12 in. band saw, a 6 in. x 48 in. belt sander, a...
