Hello Friends!

Ever wonder what it would look like to make a pen from that Jute rug you walk over every day?

...ME TOO...!

I decided to roll up a piece of Jute rug and the stabilized it in Cactus juice resin. After some trimming of the blank, I was able to get it on the mandrel. It turned out pretty cool with two coats of sanding sealer and a final coat of polyurethane. I don't like the grey streaks that much (they come from the grey backing on the carpet). On my next try, I'm going to try and remove the backing. Its not gorgeous, but it's surely unique!

Thanks for looking!

Ben

This precisely the reason I would like to get into stabilizing and casting I see thing all of the time and thick what would that look like as a pen.
Not sure I am a fan of this one but there is really potential for sure. 🤔
