This is a Majestic made from some cracked up jarra. It was an oversized blank, with deep cracks everywhere. I was able to fill them with CA, and I think it worked out.

As always, all comments and critiques are welcome.
Thanks,
Sef

Outstanding. I love turning the Majestics, and you did a tremendous job with a challenging blank. I never would have known you had any flaws without the story. It’s a great pen!

Thanks guys. I just kept feeding thin CA into the cracks before I turned it, and they dried black. I was just lucky that the color matched the darker grain of the wood, and really does look like it’s supposed to be there. I had no idea how it would turn out, but glad I tried it.

Thanks Rich. I still haven’t made a pen that feels better in the hand, or has nearly as much presence.
