Has anybody made a SCUBA pen from Woodturningz? I searched, but nothing came up. I'd like to see some photos of competed pens.

Those blanks are beyond cool!
Pretty neat...also a diver.
Also a diver, will have to check these out.
I have no stake in the blanks from Exotics, but I will say that they turned easily, finished awesome, and were very appreciated by the diver who received it! I will be ordering some of the kits Jim noted in the OP as they look great. Also, there is a Pirate's Kit ava from PSI and their distributors (Exotics, etc). Just an FYI. 🤭

Also a diver. Also interested in seeing photos of finished pens. I think they would be great gifts for my diving buddies, but they are a bit pricey and would like some feedback on quality too.

Also a diver but an old, fat wore out one. The pens are nice. I was on vacation with my wife and was diving and we saw two nice either white or black tip sharks. If I can’t remember what I’ve seen maybe that’s a good reason to stay out of the water. I got a decent picture of one and cast it on a pen. That was long before all the nice CMC blanks were available.

Also a diver, seems like we have a few that turn pens. Need to order a couple blanks from Ed for my diving buddies get together. We have a lunch every three months to catch up on what new in the diving world.
Having dive all over the South Pacific and taking lot of photo's need to find a way to transfer the image to a pen blank.

That is an amazing looking pen! I was originally thinking about making one of these for our Make-A-Wish kid, one of his wishes is to go scuba diving. But since he plays piano, I made him a PSI music pen instead.

Not a diver, but just to say .....

I can vouch for the quality of the Jeff Powell Rotacrylic blanks, as shown by Mark in the second post above. . Highly recommended !

I have made a lot of them (not the diver one) and they are excellent to turn and finish ... no problems whatsoever.

JettLake,
Thanks for posting the pictures. Can you give us some feedback on the quality, assembly, and overall feel of the scuba pen.
