Welcome to Maneater Crafts!

Hello, my name is Tom Barron.  This is my first blog post and hopefully the start of many more to come! I've operated the Maneater Blanks website for many years but decided to expand into new territory with plans to offer a variety of new products.  Please pardon the dust!  This site will be a work in progress for the next few weeks as we add new products and make tweaks here and there.  

First and foremost, I'd like to announce the launch of a Kickstarter Campaign for my new pen blank casting system. It's an innovative system that allows users to cast traditional solid body blanks as well as tube-in blanks with the use of included silicone inserts. The system will be available on the website after the campaign ends, along with several related accessories. Please check it out!

I will add photos for the new "Gator" casting molds ASAP.  Once a fresh shipment of HDPE arrives I'll begin milling new mold bodies and will make them available right away.  I have plans to carry around twelve designs of various shapes and sizes so please stay tuned!

Please drop me an email if you have any questions or comments and I will respond ASAP!
