Default Charity Pens for a Flooded HS in the Houston Area

These are for a charity auction this week to support a High School Drama department that lost everything in the Hurricane Harvey floods this summer. The blanks are Rhino Plastic from Exotic Blanks, Cabernet Swirl and Caribbean Waters. Kits also from Exotic Blanks, were Ultra Cigar and Majestic Squire. The Rhino blanks turn very nicely and polish to a high gloss. Another great advantage to the Rhino blanks is I didn't have to paint the blanks or tubes saving me a day of waiting on paint to dry. Sanded through 500 then micromesh to 12000 and finished on the buffer with pink rouge.

Nicely done. Here's hoping they bring a decent price for a good cause.

Very nice pens and kudos for donating them to a worthy cause. I really like the Rhino blanks too. If I didn't cast my own they'd probably be the ones I bought the most.

Beautiful Pens Danny,
Terrific Selection of Blanks and Hardware.
Excellently Turned, Fitted and Finished.
Great Cause, should do well in the Auction.
Turn that special piece of Timber you have been keeping.
Enjoy it for its true beauty.
Why leave it for others to enjoy without you?

Great news, the pens sold for $100 and $125! About double retail and some of the most actively bid items. Glad I could help. Thanks everyone for the kind comments.
