Deer Antler Pens

Unread post by Rohn » Fri May 20, 2016 7:34 pm

This isn't actually a wood project but I did it in my wood shop. Here are two pens I turned form deer antler and had them engraved for a customer.

These are the first things I have turned this year. I have been quite busy in the leather shop and haven't had time to spend in the wood shop. I enjoyed doing them and plan to do a couple more in a day or two, and then I have to get back to making holsters since my stock of leather goods keeps going down.

They look great!! How do you like the bolt action pen kits? Does the handle feel sturdy of fairly fragile?

I like the feel of these pen kits as there is a nice weight to them. The bolt action is very solid and works nicely.

I was showing these around in my brother's violin shop yesterday before I took them to the engraver and got an order for 2 more. |em1|

Thanks everyone for the great comments. These pens are the first thing I have turned this year. I used to do a lot of turning but my leather work has kept me so busy that I haven't had time to spend in the wood shop.

Rohn, why not post your items that you sell in our Farmer's Market section? You might get a few new customers.

I am sure we would all rather support each other than to spend our money elsewhere.

Good idea. I will do that, give me a bit of time to get it together.
