    Laser Inlay Work - Pen Box

    Here is a pen box that I made for a very special Pen Presentation.

    Laser inlayed with the real small parts done in the fashion of a wood rubber stamp.

    I think this picture is actually bigger than the real thing.

    Used dyed maple for the red, green and blue. Yellowheart for the crosses and stars.

    For the small stuff here is how:

    1.You etch the area out of the box.

    2. Make a wooden rubber stamp (mirror image of the etched area)

    3. Glue and force wood (rubber stamp) into etched area

    4. Sand smooth

    I will tell more about it once it is history.

    Need to let all involved present it first.

    Ya know Pete, if you keep practicing this inlay stuff, one of these days you're gonna get pretty good at it.

    Awesome work, my friend. The 'rubber stamp' idea is brilliant, and the end result is almost unbelievably good.

    Presented

    The pen and box was made as a gift for a new Archbishop.

    The inlay work on the box is the personal crest of the Archbishop.

    The pen was a Bethlehem Olive Wood Emperor Ft Pen.

    The cermony took place at the Vatican. Several friends of the Archbishop attended and the pen and box was a gift from one of these people.

    I have no connection to the church but I am very honored and proud to be able to be a very small part of all this.

    Archbishop Wenski’s motto is "Omnia Omnibus” meaning “All things to all men.”

    There is a full page write up on the crest that describes in detail what every item and color signifies. Luckly I had dyed wood of the correct colors available.
