    Pens, pens & more pens!

    Hello Family Members; It's been a while since I inundated you with my pens. I figure you are ready for another inundating. So here goes!



    2 pics of the same pen; an Executive Twist in a dyed Manitoba Maple burl.


    A Perfect Fit BP in a spalted Maple.

    My first fountain pen, a Jr. Gent II in a gorgeous Golden Amboyna burl.

    This is an Exec. Twist in Amboyna burl/Blue acrylic. This was termed "worthless wood" until it was cast with the blue acrylic.

    This is an Elegant Beauty BP in Malachite polyresin.


    A Perfect Fit BP in Turkish Briar root.


    My 2nd FP, a Jr. Statesman II in Desert Ironwood. I wish I had more of the DI. This was the only piece I had, given to me as a freebie from johnnycnc.


    Again, another Perfect Fit BP in a mighty spalted chunk of maple. It was so very punky. I soaked in in Minwax wood hardener for a few days, and once it was turned down to nearly the size it exploded on me. It took a lot of coffee grounds and thin CA to bring it back to life.
    It SOLD within 5 minutes of being displayed at Saturday's Farmer's Market.

    Them's them all. Hope I haven't bored you all too greatly!

    It feels great to sell a pen,
    It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

    Mack, we never get tired of being inundated by your pens.

    Pens are beautiful, as usual.

    Hi Ya Mack. I wish we had audio to be able to produce a sound response to your pens. I started out mmmh nice and as i looked at each one they just got more and more like peanuts. You never get enough of them. Boy thats a real nice batch. Way too many i like to single out a single one. You sure know what to do to make the best pens.

    Better stock up with Christmas around the corner that guy who bought from you last year needs a reminder. Send him an email with some of these pictures in. He will drool over them.

    I think i will be needing a couple for some Xmas gifts for special people this year. Will be in touch.
    cheers
