I think it's that new stealth shellac they make at area 51.

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.

Nice pens.


I have made a lot of the kind of pens you first posted. I built an entire 16th century Tudor bedroom suite using those same techniques. Although it wasn't available back then, I used the kind of shellac Paul describes. Below are the pictures.

Those are some really nice pens. I'm leaning toward the red one myself.

Have you sold any pens on Ebay? I try every now and then and don't have much luck. Plus i don't care for the high Ebay commissions... so I stay more to sites like Etsy... I just sold several on there, but I knew the person and directed them to my Etsy page... so I'm not sure if that actually counts (http://www.etsy.com/shop/HandMadeWoodGifts)

Pens sold on Ebay

I have sold a few. It's now near a expensive when you have an Ebay store. I sell most of my pens in the local craft shows and at my daughters pack-n-ship store. she also sells turvis tumblers and polo wraps she makes.

I agree with the eBay store. My wife just opened one like a month or so ago for our FBE and it looks like it will be worth the trouble. She hasn't kept it very stocked because of time constraints but it seems like a much better way to sell than onesies and twosies. I think she only has a few items left she needs to populate it again thanks for the reminder.

If you want to link your store in your signature it would be a good idea for you - WWT indexes on Google extremely well and your signature will drive some traffic to your posts here via Google searches and they click your signature and end up at your store. It works trust me on that.

Great product. I like the thicker pens. I'll checkout the ebay store. Thanks for the share.
