This pen is made from a Black Cherry burl blank I traded for with John Schmittou (TurnerJohn74) on the IAP.
These blanks are really nice looking and smell great when being turned.

As time and UV Rays work on the black cherry it will change from a pinkish red to the rich, deep red cherry is known for and the burl eyes will become blacker.

This pen will be donated to one of our servicemen or women as referred to in this thread,

All comments or criticisms welcome.
Thank you,

-- Gary, Florida.

Gary; A great looking pen. I was blessed with a friend dropping off a Cherry Burl Log.

I posted a blog of it being cut into lumber.

I remember when I was in Iraq in 07-08 we had received turned pens from an organization. Unfortunately, from Iraq back to Pendleton to Yuma and now in Pensacola, I cannot tell you where it is at exactly, but I know I still have it. A great cause and a great looking pen.
