Pen 11

The pen is a titanium and platinum cigar
First I cast the blank in Alumilite with mica powders.
I then spiral segmented the blank with aluminum flashing and thin black plastic.

Pen 12

The Antique Bronze Cigar hardware is dress in an Acrylic Blank cast by one of our IAP members. A "special" ingredient used really sparkled in the sunlight, but was difficult to capture in the photos. Turned most of the way with a Magical Skew, near the end switched to a small carbide with 2" radius, and final turning was with a HSS 1" skew in a scraping position. Quick touch with micro-mesh, and buffed to beauty!!

First time turning that blank material, so I was concerned--but it really cooperated nicely...and the result was quite pleasing.

Pen 13

This is a octagonal pen I made from mahogany and a Big Ben cigar pen kit. The tubes were shaped by hand planing the flats after turning the ends to the kit bushings.

Pen 16

An antique copper Cowboy pen kit from PSI was used to make this pen. The body is a diamondback rattlesnake skin caught on our own property. It is cast in a clear polyester resin, turned, sanded, and then polished on a buffing wheel.

Pen 17

The kit used is a 30 cal bolt action black enamel. The barrel is made from the molten metal acrylic inlace. The inlace was turned down using traditional HSS Tools to an almost finished diameter then sanded the remaining diameter, wet sanded through all micromesh pads and buffed to end.

Choosing just 3 was tough enough. These are all wonderful pens in the own way.
Going to hate having to do the final voting on this one.

Well done everyone.
