I’m waiting for some skull pen kits as well as Civil War pen kits. Some of the pens will feature bodies made from 200+ year old oak that was harvested from the swamps of Virginia and stabilized so it can be worked with safely.
These will sell for $40.00 ea. When made from reg blanks. Those made from the 200 year old blanks will sell for $60 and will come with a certificate of authenticity.
Before Cheeto Mussolini pissed me off, managed to do this new pen which is already posted on the website for sale. Hope to make some more pens later in the week.
Listened to the Cheeto Mussolini tonight and all it did was piss me off. What a lying sack of shit. All this excuse of a human being is going to do is fuck us all and then sell us out to the highest bidder. Below is a link to the newest Rebels Roost video where I go apeshit on his lying ass.
Had hoped to have had this finished by now but the bottom tube is screwed up and I won’t be able to get a replacement for it until Wednesday. In the meantime, went a head and turned what will become the top of the fountain pen.
The red is veneer, the blue is denim and it’s sandwiched in between olivewood. The next logical step in doing this segmented pens is to be able to engrave the olivewood that’s in between the inlay, which if possible, would be something that to my knowledge, has never been tried let alone done.
The link below will take you to the new pen store that is now open for business. Although there is only a handful of pens on it at the moment, more will be added every month. So drop on by and let me know what you think.
well, slowly but surely I’ve been building up inventory in hopes of having enough stock to take to a craft show this summer. Along with these, also ordered some deer antler but need a scroll saw to be able to cut it down to workable pieces.
Well, Since a few days after Christmas I’ve been in the workshop playing with the lathe and new drill press that Mae got me. And for the past week, I’ve been making Pens. So far, I’ve made 8. Gave 1 to a friend, and the misses took one. 2 I’m keeping for myself. The rest are for sale for $25 ea.
The Misses took this one.
And I’m keeping these 2.
Most of these have wooden bodies that were turned on the lathe. A couple have Acrylic bodies that also were shaped on the lathe. Anyone that wants one can contact me through the Standing Bear Facebook page. Bullet pens by the way will be between $50 – $75 depending of it wood is used like the one pictured right above, it uses a piece from a Jack Daniels whisky barrel, or deer antler.
In 8 days a half Orangutan, half Oompa Loompa will be sworn in as the 45th President. Under normal conditions, this fact would be funny, the stuff that could only happen in a screwball comedy. But these are not normal times or conditions. And the morons that voted for this moron in chief, are just beginning to realize just how bad they have screwed not only the country over but themselves. Case in point, the redneck the other day that celebrated Trump getting rid of “Obamacare” while all the while noting that he had his insurance under the ACA. When others pointed out that the ACA and Obamacare were the exact same thing and that he would also loose his insurance, the poor bastard went silent. That is the normal level of ignorance of a Trump supporter. Others, are laughing for they realize how badly the future will be and delight in seeing Trump supporters slit their own throats. I realize though that this is not the time to gloat, but a time to come together and unite against the coming bad times. Every time in our history that the Republicans have controlled both the white house and the congress this country has suffered a major economic depression or recession. And this time will be no different.
May God Help Us All.
