I finished my 391Challenge pen.
The blog is here. that describes the rules and how this wood came to be.
I found a log in my driveway and it was a Cherry Burl. I had it sliced and gave some pen blanks out in the Pen Trade Swap.
Turning the blank was quite easy. I had no chipouts from the burl, but i did have a wormhole that was patched with burl sanding dust and epoxy glue. It is under the clip, but is pretty invisable.
We are suppose to have our pens made by July 4th so get going guys.
