Makes a Beautiful Duck Call

When turning this type of blank on the lathe you must use a soft touch and gradually move in with a harder cut. It is a must that you have VERY SHARP TOOLS. With this "Money Blank" maintaining a feel for the stock is a must. I used a fingernail gouge, 1" skew, and a parting tool.
I use these pen blanks in...

I use these pen blanks in cigar kits and they turn out great! I always turn this blank leaving as much material as possible. The bigger the pen the better. Turning the pen large allows for more of a 3D effect.
Not good for small diameter pens

This material probably looks great if the blank is not turned to a thickness of less than 3/16" above the brass tube surface. The shredded money becomes sparse when turned too thin and the effect is a few pieces of shredded money floating over a brass tube. The only reason I give this 2 stars is that I think it may achieve a better effect on a really bulky pen.
