                  I have tried! I live right on a beach in SoCA and over the years I ve picked up wood that has looked intesting. It, so far, has not been worth the work.

                    I have tried! I live right on a beach in SoCA and over the years
                    I've picked up wood that has looked intesting. It, so far, has not
                    been worth the work. It's rare to find anything that you can't do
                    better with fresh wood. Most of the wood here is soft and bleached.
                    I've never tried casting the blanks to ad some body, that might work
                    better? If I ever find some hardwood that has not had the color
                    bleached out I will try again. I did find an interesting piece of
                    plastic once, must have come off a boat, that made a nice pen.

                            Nice pen. Drift wood from the lakes probably comes out much better then
                            wood that has been drifting in the ocean. I would think that the salt
                            water would probably really screw up the wood up.

                            That is just a label cast in resin. Only thing I would do different in the future is put glue on the label seam before casting. It lifted a little but clip

                              the future is put glue on the label seam before casting. It lifted a
                              little but clip hides it ;-)

                              A little more detail. It is an Avery label done on a photo printer. I
                              got a good picture from the owner of the buggy. The text has a white
                              and a black outline that makes it pop like that. Then I just wrapped
                              the label around the tube and cast it in poly resin. The pen turns a
                              lot of heads!!! I got the idea from you a couple of years back...

                              By the way my most popular pen is the 30-06 with antler top... I have
                              only made one and I gave it as a gift but everyone talks a lot about it.

                              - I am going to cast some sand to put in a pencil kit. It will go with
                              the drift wood pen. This will be my Silver Lake Sand Dunes set.
                              - Pine Cone casting for an Atlas kit
                              - Another corb cobb cigar pen (I don't buy the blank I just use a cobb
                              from the field)

                                The wood I find in San Diego is usually bleached beyond use and it's usually
                                softwood in any case. Although, over the years, I've found some great
                                looking "shapes" most of it isn't good wood.

                                    I've made several of the 30.06 with antler tops... I have plans to make some with the dakota burl, to simulate a camo look, as well as a blank called molten metal I got from Rockler..

                                    The casing pens are very popular, and hunters as well as shooters, and the military like them...
