Good morning everyone! As I sit and wait in the rain to be able to start working, I just wanted to say hi and introduce myself. My name is Chris, I’m relatively new to pen making, I have only successfully made 3 pens so far. Would have been six but stuff happens. Went a little too aggressive on one blank and went down to the tube, tried casting some blanks with Liquid Diamonds and apparently didn’t glue the tube in well enough and had those explode. Is that going to stop me, NO!!!! I live in Tacoma WA now for 4 years before that I lived in central CA. I can’t wait to learn from everyone and maybe get some tips on working with these acrylic blanks. Hope everyone is having a great day. Time to go play in the rain.
