    Shock obsorber pen

    Well the first pen for 2020 and the first for a long time

    I had this kit in my pen draws for ages and the blank is one half of one that I drilled before breaking the other half and the hole was just the right size for this kit as well as being long enough. just shows that not throwing anything away can sometimes find a home.

    So this is the first of the ones I made my new years resolution about so how many can say they stuck to what they said that they would do.

    Blank is white and copper coloured

    Absolutely shocking Derek

    I have not made one but they look fantastic. That blank is great. Is it one you made yourself? Lovely swirls and very attractive colours. It's true that not throwing bits away is fruitful. I am of the same mind; got me out of trouble a number of times.


    Yet again, well done and I would to see the pen you made with the blanks I gave you when you use them.

    Cheers
