    Rollerball Click pen

    :bananen_smilies068:Does anyone know of a click pen kit that will accept a rollerball refill. I have a customer that is looking for one. If not, is there a rollerball refill that will fit in a standard click pen kit?

    Jr. Abraham

    Here is a Jr. Abraham dressed with a blank I bought during last year's MPG in Wadsworth, Ohio. I love this kit and blank. The kit is heavy and feels very stout in your hand. Let me know what you think!

    Organic Victorian 24kt rollerball

    Okay, a play on words, but it is all natural occurring woods and colors :biggrin: Pennstate Ind. 24kt gold victorian rollerball. Woods include Satinwood, Bloodwood, Ipe, Ebony, and a touch of (non-organic) dymondwood. Finished in cyanoacrylate (okay, so that's non-organic too:-)). If you've not...

    End of the Semester

    Finally got some time, now that the semester is done, to turn a couple of new pens. The first is a commissioned piece that I hand't tried before - an antique pewter Celtic Fountain pen. The second is a chrome Navigator roller ball pen out of a mystery wood from my random stack =)

    Thank you George!

    Here are a couple pens that I have finally managed to make from some of my winnings in one of the earlier Mr. Anonymous games. The first is an Americana rollerball wrapped in Majestic Olive, while the second is by far my favorite wood that I have turned so far, which is Colonial Gum Burl...

    Garnet & Gold? No - Cedar & Osage Orange

    I'm a Florida State fan and one of our local high schools also has the same colors. The pen is a Classic Rollerball dressed in Red Cedar and Osage Orange/Hedge Apple/Bodock (whatever you want to call it.) Both are from Middle Tennessee. At any rate, it's not quite Garnet & Gold, but I think...

    Curly Maple Firewood Rescue

    My firewood rescue pile is bigger than my burnable firewood pile. It is driving my wife nuts. So should I continue this practice I ask myself? I am thinking ...... why not. This one was from a huge chunk of Curly Maple. It has that classic chatoyance that I love.

    I'm wondering if anyone knows how long Red Heart can be expected to maintain its color before turning brown on the customer? Thanks for any input. All comments/critiques are welcome.

    Amboyna Burl Triton

    I made this today .... Amboyna Burl on Triton Components. A rollerball but it will easily convert to a fountain. To bad they don't sell components that include each option. :eek::smile: That'll NEVER happen! :biggrin::wink: Comments and critiques welcome. Thanks for looking! :smile:

    Another El Grande rollerball pen from PR casting

    Here's another El Grande rollerball made from one of my cast blanks from last weekend.

    Yellow Box Burl Jr. Gent rollerball

    Here's a Jr. Gent in #2 Yellow Box Burl that was kind of a throw in to "fill the box" on an order I got from member isaacrapelje. Finished with several coats of CA with some sanding between coats to fill some voids, and then buffed. Comments and critiques are welcome. Thanks for looking...
