How are you doing the graphics?
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).

New toy for new project. Pecky cypress or sinker cypress. Doing an acrylic pour in the voids. Will them plane and join the boards to be a table top. NEver did this before. Fill pour will be very interesting.F62F3CDD-3099-4B8C-9BF1-D76763B324A4.png1C6EA25E-CE7D-4AA1-9F68-6E7FB5F8C136.png921E7FD4-490E-46BA-857B-F913413AF5DC.png8E9CE8AF-9EE8-43CC-8E76-DB72DCB2545C.png

I've been looking at that one and the 735x but haven't managed to invent a reason to pull the trigger on either yet.
Was running into same problem but its portable so at least it wont take up alot of space. I want a cnc but that is not anywhere near my budget for tinkering around in the garage.

I'd rather have 4 quarters than 100 pennies.

Yep. I've been looking at big systems and then the smaller ones like the x-carve but I just can't justify the cash right now no matter how cool they are or how much I want some of the things.

I’d love to have an x-carve. I could have a lot of fun with that.
I’m not sure what the size limitation is to that though, but I imagine the big rigs get pretty pricey. But I feel like as soon as I got a small one like the x-carve I’d come up with a project it can’t handle.
