I got some spiral aluminum shavings sent in to me from the awesome folks at Stainless Bottle Stoppers, so I had to make some pen blanks! There are two styles, red pearl and blue/purple colorshift (blurple). I turned one of them on Live Stream Episode 117, so make sure to scroll through and check it out for tips on turning them. The end result is so cool, the red one looked like a candy cane with the aluminum spirals. These require a delicate touch when drilling and turning. I always douse the inside of the blank with thin CA and use thick CA on the tube when glueing tubes in. The thin CA will help if there are any weak bonds on the inside.

These blanks measure approximately 3/4″ x 3/4″ x 5″. There are only 2 red and 3 purple available, price is for one blank. Check out the video below to see more details of the blanks up close, and if you would like to see me turn a red one, the live stream replay below as well. I also linked up a video that shows how I glue tubes in if you want to check it out.
