Default The other things i make

Ok so one of my other sources of income/hobby/addiction is pen making. Here are a couple I've done in the last 2 days. They are done from aluminum and copper which I distress and create rivet patterns on, then cast in an acrylic resin and the turn to size and shape on my wood lathe.

Enjoy!

I have a feeling I will be making a lot more of these!

Very nice man. I could see myself owning a couple of those

You should make some out of spent casings.
