    Shark Tooth Pen, a Sierra style

    I had a lot of fun with this one. I bought some shark teeth from a supplier in FL and then resin cast them in a Sierra tube mold from ptownsubbie. The pen featured uses black teeth from 5 to 20 million years ago. The blanks showing the white teeth are from Morocco (I think, or a kind of...

    Sierra Clip

    the clip on one of the sierras I use at work has started to bend outward I know the sierra pen kit has the clip attached but is their a way to bend the clip back or replace it. Also the clip has been semi spinning from being used I found many threads on people making their own clips but could...

    A New Spin on Sweet Gum Pods

    Turned this one this morning. It's an Elegant Sierra from Berea Hardwoods with a satin chrome finish. The blank is made from several Sweet Gum Pods arranged in a row and cast in white Alumilite. Kind of a pain to make but I like the results.

    My 1st Sale

    Its a really good feeling when you sell your 1st pen. Its almost like some sort of vindication that you've chosen a good hobby to do. :) I've been away from wood turning for about 12 or so years and this time I've decided to get into pen turning. I'm concentrating on a minimal set of kits and...

    Sierra pen mechanism

    Having made a hundred or so pens and experimented with a number of different styles of kit, I've just made my first Sierra. When assembled, the extended writing tip only just protruded beyond the end of the nib body by about 1 to 2mm. I've had this happen on odd occasions with other kits, but...

    JohnU Snake Skin prize Blank.

    As requested, I am posting a picture of one of the JohnU blanks sent to me. This was my first time turning an acrylic/resin cast blank. I helped my kids turn some acrylic blanks a couple months back but never set out to turn one on my own. (Very partail to the wood look). So here it is. I...

    First Decal Pen

    I'm not all that happy with this one as I don't think it pops. The ivory blank needs to be a tad whiter. But pretty stoked as it's my first truly customised pen.

    Purple pen, pink ink

    My daughter (16) requested a purple pen with pink ink, and not a capped pen. The only pink refill I could find locally was from a Uni-Ball Signo 207, and the only un-capped pen I know of that takes this refill is the Sierra Click (classic). Does the Sierra Click (new) take the uniball refill...

    Long Pen Tubes sources??

    I want to make some specical toothpick holders. They use a 27/64 drill bit and I think the brass tube is 10.5 mm in diameter. It is equivalent to the Sierra or Wall SII tubes. I would like to find a source of that diameter tubes 10" long or longer. Any sources??

    Bird seeds Sierra

    Hi all! :smile: Still from the "anything's possible with CA" department, here is another experiment with bird seeds: I proceeded as for the mimosa flowers except i used ground seeds to 'paint' the tube before gluing the seeds. There is a lot of potential with seeds... I'm thinking...
