mah pens
« on: January 10, 2018, 11:04:45 PM »
ok, So I have spoken with great enthusiasm about making pens a la turning on a wood lathe.

I was thinking about an AUK themed pen and have the parts to do so, however I needed to practice and this is what I have come up with so far.

Please excuse the pic, the camera on the phone is guff and the colours are shot. 

The AUK Themed one will be in the same colours(Red/black),have a bolt action, bullet nib and sniper rifle clip.  I have also been looking at solutions to place the AUK logo somewhere on the pen.  This may take a little time as I practice more.

Let me know what you guys think and if you would want to pay for one, with profits going to server costs.  Cost of pen parts and red/black wood blank come to roughly 10 before I even put time into it.  Price may need to be a discussion point.

hopefully getting more of the blanks at the end of the month.  With practice and luck I'll probably be making 2 per day I am motivated to do it.  Also looking into miniature gun cases for the pens, but there is only one place so far I've found and its in the US.

Go figure :P

That pen looks awesome already, can't believe this is your first! If you used high quality parts this should be a really fancy writing tool. Good job!

That looks sweet, especially for a first go  :)

Can't wait to see the one with the bolt action etc.
