    I bought the unfinished blank from some store on etsy. The metal parts (bolt action) from woodcraft.

    I just google “(fill in name) pen blank”. Example: “Chicago Blackhawks pen blank”. They almost always have something. Lately I have been finding them on etsy. This was my search from a few days ago.

    For all the (quite accomplished, might I add) woodworkers in here, I was wondering if y'all could recommend a decent wood putty/filler that takes stain but won't shrink and crumble like the crap from Home Cheep-o. Bearing in mind I'm in commiefornia so I'm very limited in what I can aquire, too. Much obliged.

    Use sawdust from the same project and wood glue. Sawdust should be from same project so it looks more natural. Mix the two together and fill in the “problem” area. You can then sand it down with a small block wrapped in sand paper (220 grit).
