    Little casting and spinning.

    Back to work tomorrow so I wanted to knock some stuff out of the shop. Alumilite on worthless wood...dark blue/silver and purple/yellow on a couple Sierra's and a V2. Friend of mine up the road just sold $800 on day one of a two day craft show. We are sharing a booth at the next one! Thanks for looking!

    I've always been a fan of the worthless wood pens. Very nice one you did there. Do you use a pressure pot when you cast things?
