It is the heat of summer here in Nebraska. The weather is a balmy 95 with about 85% humidity.... so we are ALL miserable. The good news is that my shop is not air conditioned. Actually that's totally NOT good news and it means I get to be miserable when I make pens. But I'm sure there are worse ways to sweat your ass off in the summer :) .
I've gotten a few pens made in the last couple weeks. If you're bored you should check out the Black and Blue pen pictured with this blog post. It has to be the craziest, most deceptive material I have ever used. I figured it was gonna be a boring black and white pen. Instead I ended up getting navy blue shaving from it. Upon closer inspection, I realized that the pen looks black but glistens dark blue. Its crazy and you have to see it to believe it. Stuff like this is why I just don't get bored making pens.
My special order cue is running around 1 to 2 weeks lead time right now. I have plenty of room for more projects. If you have something in mind, drop me and email and we can talk about your pen build. Be sure to put "pen inquiry" in the subject line.
Thats about it for this week. Stay tuned for more new stuff. I am working on a design for a piston filler with aluminum guts and might begin work on it in the next couple weeks. Thanks for coming along for the ride.
