Default Postal Cigar Pen

Here is one of my favorite pens i have turned. Wrapped in old 3 cent stamps around the barrel with a CA finish.

Great Job. I've seen a lot of Sierra's done with stamps, but never a cigar. Looks great !!

Nick,

I am usually not a fan of copper plated kits, but the copper kit is complemented nicely by the stamps you selected. Nice job.

Very nice pen! Did you just lick and stick the stamps or did you use ca on the backs?

thanks, this was my first attempt at encasing the barrel with stamps. Next time I will try casting the barrel instead of using multiple CA layers.

I used a glue stick on the stamps and pressed each one onto the barrel.
