Pen made for Mother’s Day. Not the easiest material to turn. I busted 3 of 4 blanks I bought. One cracked taking it off of the lathe. You live and learn. I painted the inside of the blanks before flying the tubes. The lines from the drilling can still be seen through the resin. My mom loves it and can’t see the lines. I’m going to start calling my pens ‘gifts of imperfections’, lol.
