Thumbs up

Pre conception can be rewarding or defeating. Your pen is beautiful, we here viewing and responding are either makers of at some time Corian Pens or in so many cases never seen Corian so we form attitudes and predudices and subjectively make statements. Our privilige your request.

Show this pen to non pen makers describing the material used as man made and results will astound you. Then you will have people who prefer natural material eg Timber or as we have in our country so called Green people from choice who stay away from artificial materials and a decision or observation will be influenced by those thoughts.

Let me please observe like riding a motor bike without an exhaust is an experience I have made innumerable Corian pens, I love natural timbers and fully enjoy cast pens your pen rates highly for me it covers for me the shape , colour, detail finish and good presentation.
Delightful pen.

Regards Peter.

I think that is a real nice looking Cigar pen. I have made about 40 corian pens and still have about 20 left.
My biggest problem is that people think they are too heavy and I have never made larger diameter ones like the cigar kit because of that.

Are you gluing pieces together for those larger diameter pens or do you have access to thicker than the 1/2" pieces I have been able to get.

Hello William!! We don't seem to have a problem selling the heavier pens.Alot of men really like the feel of the larger pens done in the corian.I guess we have just been lucky in that respect.We glue up the 1/2" stock to make the larger blanks.

.
I find the glue lines are practically invisible with most patterns except for when I tried it with a few solid colors.

I sometimes glue up nine different contrasting colors of corian pen blanks to make bottle stopper blanks and they are my best sellers for stoppers. .
I have always used CA for gluing with excellent results . Just wondering if you use a special glue or do you also use CA.
