I made this carbon fiber pen from scraps left over from my prosthetic leg. It took me ten tries to get it flat enough to fit the pen hardware. I cast it in resin and very carefully turned it down being careful not to dig into the fiber, and boy is it close but I am so happy with the result. The olive wood pens are a hit with family and friends at the holidays. Boy what beautiful wood. I like to go to Rockler and select it myself, to get the best figured wood I can. The golf pen was an accident. I was shopping with my wife at the craft store and ran across this paper that looked just like the fairway turf. this pen is also cast in resin. Projects were fun and easy to do except the carbon-fiber pen took some patience.
"I have made several online orders from Rockler, and the customer service has been great. While I have not had an unreasonable number of complications, I have had a few. Each time the folks at Rockler were very quick to respond, easy to work with and resolved the issue in the best way imaginable. Many thanks! I will be a customer for many years to come." -
