Acrylic Acetate is a popular semi-translucent material that is available in a wide variety of colors and patterns. This pattern is called Midnight Racer, a swirling blend of black and orange. Acrylic is easily cut, drilled, trimmed and turned. It turns down to dimension very quickly, so take care to use light pressure. It takes a very nice polish, which can be accomplished by sanding to a fine grit and then polishing on a buffing wheel with Corian® polish, buffing compound or Hut finishing blocks.

Can’t say enough good things about this blank. The orange streaks are so vibrant in contrast to the blacks and greys. The dark greys have a fantastic sheen that gives a metallic like finish.

My main pen now. :-)
Really liked the look of this one. Went with a platinum European style for the hardware.

Beautiful Design, Beautiful Finish
The Midnight Racer pen blank was the best color choice I have made. Drilling, glueing, and cleaning was a breeze. Even though I am still new to pen making, it came out great. Caution: Since the majority of this blank is a dark color, be very careful when shaving. Shaving to hard will leave white streaks that can be very noticeable and will take awhile to sand them out. In general, I would recommend this project as a great gift for the holidays or to display. Thanks Rockler!

Failed while drilling
Color were awesome in the blank; however, the blank failed while drilling hole for tubes with a brand new brad point. That is the reason for the low rating. Wish I could have had better luck, pen would have turned out awesome.
