East Indian Rosewood: Hexagon barrel.
East Indian Rosewood: Rope Spiral using my MillLathe. See Rich, I do remember.
Sierra blanks made using a pool cue inlay machine. Top: Corian and unknown inlay. Bottom: Steelwood with white corian bands and ebony inlays. These blanks were made by William Lee, aka williecue, a pool cue maker from Corpus Christi, TX
This snake skin pen style has sort of become my signature snake skin pen. Wooden bottom and skin sandwitched between matching wood for the top on a slimline components. I usually use mesquite or a darker wood, but the unusual lighter color of this skin called for something else. I choose a piece of buckeye.

Nothing special except the wood: mesquite burl. I made two of these to give to the fellow who gave me several basketball size mesquite burls. Thanks Charlie.
Mesquite burl, snake skin cap, closed end baron. The clip finial was replaced with a matching wooden one and the clip ring was recessed and hidden under the clip finial.
I've been doing some casting using computer labels with ink jet printed logos cast in polyester resin using the same process as I do snake skins. NO CA is used to stick the labels onto the tube...just peel and stick.
Another set of computer labels with company logos.

These diamond shaped pieces were laser cut by Ken Nelsen then I glued them together much like his puzzle pen. This is a commissioned pen for a lady in New York. See the next picture for the family crest on the back of the cap.
