Thank you! :)

Additionally the wormhole on this piece I attempted to rub in some metallic green paint before doing the wet sanding and ca finish. It didn’t pop as much as I’d like due to the sanded material and water saturating the hole and paint.

Otherwise this didn’t turn out to bed for using leftover scraps from other pens. :)

Those are fun to make….I made several of them and my other half put in needles, thread and some buttons and gave them to some military friends as emergency sewing kits.

Love that buckeye….it has such spectacular color and grain. Nice finish….

man Lar, that looks absaloutly great with no exceptions!!!! my dad could use something like that for some of his medicines, far from toothpicks but i bet it would work and keep them from the coating melting off all over his pocket!

Thanks.. if would have to be really small pills to fit in there. It holds less than 10 toothpicks I think.

Glad you like the look of it.
