    Roasted Maple

    50 caliber casing with a Curly Maple nib and takes a Cross refill.
    Turned, drilled, sanded to 400x, buffed with super fine steel wool, burnished with turned wood shavings and applied 6 coats of MINWAX Clear Gloss Wipe-On-Poly using the "Dipping Method".
    Another one for up coming Gun Show next weekend.

    Picture taking quality is slowly improving.

    Innovation is the process that renews something that already exists and not, as is commonly assumed, the introduction of something new.

    Another beauty, Les. I do think I like looks of the bloodwood one better, but like that one, this detailing on this maple pen is outstanding. You've done a remarkable job of replicating the shell casing. No doubt this one will sell.

    Les....is the casing a turned piece or an actual shell casing painted?
    It's not what you achieve in life...It's what you overcome!
