    Pens cuz I don't have time for anything else!!!

    Was lucky enough to grab one of Toni Ransfield's blanks from the stash at Exoticblanks.com. You could put these on a stick and they would brighten any day of the week!! Thanks Toni and Ed!
    Next is a HRB (Hondurian Rosewood Burl from Keller) cast with Alumilite. Added the finial to "keep the flow" so to speak. Casting was done by a friend of mine because Grizzly has their pot on backorder Black Ti Jr Gent. C&C always used on the next one and thanks for looking!

    I'm glad to see you're getting some turning time there, bud. Great-looking pens. I especially like the yellow rose one.

    Yes they are both very nice. That Toni is a real artist for sure and you did a great job on her, er blank. I like the other probably a little more because I like wood more than clay. Just me.

    Good looking pens Jim. So does this mean your going to start casting your own blanks?

    Great looking blanks Jim.
    Did you consider using gold plating on the Poly Clay?
