I have an extremely plentiful supply of big pinecones and would like to make pens and wine bottle stoppers out of them. I have seen people who have over molded them with plastic and turned them. The final product looked really cool. Does anyone know how to do this and what materials are required?

you might give jdaschel a shout and I am not sure of the process but I know you need a pressure pot.

I have purchased blanks from James. Not pincones but his burl mutt castings. He uses Alumilite and casts under pressure. He does an excellent job and unless you want to get into casting Id get ahold of him to purchase blanks. Casting can get pricey!!
