Made a few pens for myself. Been thinking about selling some, but I have no idea what to charge.
Sorry for the terrible picture.
Starting on left:
1. Deer antler
2. White oak, cut cross grain.
3. Different scrap wood glued to make a blank, then cut into pieces and rotated when each piece is glued
to the metal sleeve.
4. Metal shavings from a key making machine mixed with walnut sawdust. Glued together with Minwax
wood hardener. Beautiful pen, but metal was hard on the turning tools.
5. Coffee beans, cedar sawdust, and glitter with the hardener.
6. Coffee beans and white rice with hardener.

Clever use of off beat materials!

WRT pricing ... I've sold similar style pens for around $35.00 but you might command more given the 'exotic' materials.
