This is my first attempt at turning amboyna burl, and my first attempt at turning a fountain pen. I was a bit hesitant because it’s so expensive, but I think it turned out ok.

I just did my first amboyna burl and was suprised to have no problems, think I might have to try a fountain pen, does it work well? Looks real nice.

Beautiful looking grain. Nice pen

It works for me. I’d use it.
