I had an idea for a cardboard pen a while back. So I made it.

Great.  I can't imagine guessing what it was in a past life.
What's your favorite resin?  I don't know diddly squat about making pens.

I think that is great Phil. Did you have to use a pressure pot?

Phil, nice looking pens.

You might like to check out the work of Jason Schneider at[URL=www.jasonschneiderfurniture.com ][/URL]. Saw his demo on turning cardboard in Phoenix.
Amazing what you can do with cardboard - Jason doesn't use resin - well not back in 2014 anyway.

Sorry for late response.

The Pens have won a little competition, or at least been a prize-winning placement. 

They were a little experiment on what I could do with the resin and things I have without buying a vacuum chamber ect. 

Here is how I did it https://www.instructables.com/id/Cardboard-Pens/
