Default Not your average wedding pen

This project involved both routing and turning so this is the perfect place to show it off ...

Most people wouldn't pick a corncob pen for their wedding guestbook, but when SHE works for Monsanto and HE works for Case IH, there is a certain logic to it.

I'm not positive that the cobs came off his family farm, but I do know that he brought me the Osage Orange (bodark, etc.) that the box is made from.

Questions, comments and criticisms are welcome. Thanks for looking.

Hey Tony, very beautiful result, I haven't had much experience with corn cob or seen many projects done with it, I really find the pattern and colors to be really interesting. Thanks for sharing
