    3 Vertex Clicks

    This is a rather new design in the pen market in the last few months or so. The first 2 I turned sold very quickly. I'm hoping the same holds true for these 3.

    L to R: Cocobolo & veneer inlay, Chrome plated; Spalted Maple & veneer inlay, Satin Chrome plated; Alternate Coral (polyresin), Gun Metal plated.

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

    Nice kit, nice material, nice work = NICE PENS! DO you do the inlay yourself or are they available...? I know there 1000's of sources I haven't found yet.
    Thanks!

    Hi Michael; While I called this an inlay for want of a better description, the blank was sliced on a scrollsaw a number of times and the veneer was glued between the slices.

    A friend of mine did this and then discarded the blanks. I only recycled them!

    Mark, call it what you will, that is a fascinating effect. Can I assume you're starting out with a larger chunk, like a 2x2, or ??. Thanx!

    Great pens, Mack. I especially like the cocobolo one...the veneer adds a lot to it.

    Nope, the chunk wasn't any larger than normal 1" x 1".

    It's MACK, like you see on the front of the truck!
