Default Looking for Local Georgia Penturners for Movie Project

Hello All!

I am new to the forum. I am a props person working on a local film in Atlanta. I was looking for a list of pen making craftsmen in the area that would be able to duplicate a one-of-a-kind pen we have chosen as a prop for our film.

I can email a pic. Know anywhere I can find a Local list of craftsmen?

Hi,

That looks like it would be very doable. It appears to be a standard Slimline pen done in Olivewood with the custom cross clip and band.

I don't know anyone in your area but it's certainly easy and cheap to mail.

I'd be happy to help you but if you would rather work with someone local, I understand.

Have blessed day!

I'm in the Atlanta area but that hardware does not look familiar to me and to duplicate the wear on the components might take some doing.

I have PM'd Nichole some info and contacts. Both the centerband and the clip are available from Exotic Blanks. The picture from Nichole looks like a silver/chrome clip. Exotic's looks to be gold... Maybe the pen Nichole pictured was originally gold, and just beaten into submission and worn down to the plating !.

The pen displayed looks pretty "lovingly used..." But would be fun to replicate... A wrench for the nib marks, some 80 grit sandpaper for the weathered finish, a dull spindle gouge for the basic shaping... What FUN!

Yeah, I'm sure it's just a standard gold clip that has been worn down. Heck, I've done that myself accidentally with a buffer before. It looks like the clip has worn down a groove in the top (must be loose) - that would be easy to replicate.

I'd love to know the significance of the pen.

Hi Nichole. You’re in the right forum to find Georgia pen makers.

Are you looking for one duplicate, or multiple? The trickiest part would be finding a wood blank that is a close blank, especially matching a blank with such nice grain.

What’s your timeline?

Thanks,
