Here are a few of my pens. I just bought a photo box for taking picture. So after Christmas I plan on retaking allot of pictures to get better quality. My album as a few more pictures of pens.



From left to right Black Ash Burl, Redwood lace and Green Box elder Triton Pens.
English Walnut, Kelat and Bethlehem Olive wood Elegant Sierra Pens.
Rosewood lace Trimline pen and a Cocobolo Slimline Pen.


As for your pen it looks good from what I can see. I'd like another view of the pen and your box.

My photo box is homemade so I haven't figured out the lighting yet but with time I can get you better pictures. As for your pens I really like those kits my dad actually made a few of those, yours look great.

I like the box, what is the reddish things on both sides.

The pen picture looked better the first time. I think it's the angle because the back of the pen is dark. A different angle might work but as I said it looks good. What type of wood?

Looks good! I like the Seals Idea too! What wood did you use for the pen? and the ends for the box looks like Rosewood. Click on My Photos under my profile to see some of the Pens I've created, I plan to add some of my recent one soon. Thanks for sharing!

I'm not 100 percent sure the wood of the pen I just bought a box of blanks online because I'm very new to this. The red seals are makers mark seals...I am an ambassador for Makers Mark and every year they give us a gift and last year I got a gold stamp and their wax so I figured I would give it a try. Thank you all for the compliments.

Pirate the pen looks good for as much as I can see of it. You need to get more of a cross section of it when you take the picture. The pen box looks great. Here are a few of the pens I have made. First one is one of those laser cut kits and the mechanics really like these. The second one is a pen and pencil set ( Bermese rosewood) I raffled off at work and the proceeds went to the families we support at Christmas. The last two ( rosewood and sweet acacia) I made for my sweetie. It was a crazy holiday season for pens and bottle stoppers. I'm glad it's over for awhile.

Here is one that I am very proud of. The blank is Polymer Clay made by Toni Ransfield who is quite an artist.
Here is a link to my photo album feel free to browse and comment.

Dick I can see why that is one of your favorites. That is just an incredible blank and your workmanship is great as always.

Here's a few I did last night and had on my camera. Thought I would share. I really like the flower acrylic pen, I bet it's a big seller.

I just recently started making my pens last year, I started making hunting calls, but only sold one. So I moved to pens, compared to the rest of you I'm using low-end pen kits it looks like. I still have lots to learn.

These were just "action shots" of some of my pens to capture a little extra detail. I'm making a photo-box this weekend. If I get the time.


Canarywood


Great side shot of grain of a recently sold Padauk pen.


and just a general shot of one of my more favorite pens I've made. Which is Padauk and Rosewood.

Who doesn't like to show their wares??? Here is a few that I made. Any questions comments or critiquing is always welcomed.














Here is a few I casted using various metals. From left to right: brass, stainless steel, copper, and chrome.











And a few more and hope I did not overstep my place here. I am new to this forum.











Thanks all for looking.

Son is here and wants a skinny and dull pen not a shiny one and I show him the different options.

Cherry Burl from a shipping pallet and CA finish

100 year old cedar fence post from Montana and no finish

Irish Bog Oak with bloodwood center band with two coats of sanding sealer and buffed with 0000 steel wool to make it dull.

John T. ,You have some awesome looking pens. It looks like you have been doing this for a while and have alot of experience with pen making. Have you thought of doing a tutorial on the casting of your pens? I would love to learn this.
