I'm not great at introductions but to sum things up, my hobby is collecting hobbies. :)

I've been turning I dunno 10 years on and off. But I'm kicking things up a notch and am learning label casting, creating resin blanks, and adding decals.

Looking forward to going through resources and getting advice and feedback on some things I'm still getting the hang of.

Here's a few of my turned pens with store bought acrylics

Welcome from the rest of the West . Don`t think there has ever been a moose jaw pen posted here . Alligator jaw , yes . I neglected to get the jaw from the hitchhiker I gave a lift to 10 years ago , only got the antler and some hair .

My advise would be , explore your local raw materials . Someone from Saskatoon may chip in , saskatoon being another under utilized resource . More fun than buying plastics and exotics . You might also want to consider casting to fill voids in local materials .

Welcome aboard JL. Casting is a very interesting world.
Your lucky, you have a great resource located just north of you in Saskatoon. Curly’s wife Marla is a wiz with casting.
