I did not think it looked nice when I had it but when I finish I was completely shocked and so was my friend. That pen was her favorite at of all others so I gave it to her. Amazing results.!

Be very careful with these. I purchased 4 blanks. I set up my drill press to a speed of ~320 rpm. I proceded very slowly, raising and clearing the drill bit every 1/4" to 1/2" of depth. When I tried to use the appropriate end mill (with light pressure), to square the end of the blank, the blank broke apart into small and large pieces. I tried a second blank. Finished the drilling and went to cut it to length (I drilled a long blank to prevent "Blowout") and the blank broke into more small and large pieces.
The blanks are brittle.

The beauty is hidden on most of these acrylic blanks.once turned it really did look like a swirl of molten metal...great name. I also like that no two are ever alike, makes for interesting turning. I wet sanded and followed up with some car polish with a cleaner in it...then it REALLY came to life.
"Every time I have been in a Rockler store around the country I have left feeling that I received wonderful service and most always had exactly what I needed in stock at a fair to great price. the only complaint, if it can be called that, is that I have to drive over 45 minutes to reach the nearest Rockler store. My wife probably appreciates that distance, as I am certain that if one was as close as I wished it to be, we would have very little left in our checkbook!" -
