A chrome scigar in Ringed Gidgee wood from Australia I got as part of a blank swap with a a friend down there. I had never heard of it or 3/4 of the wood I got and this is the first piece I have turned. It has a wonderful chatoyance na dthe colors are remarkable. Hope you enjoy it.

Very nice pen Jerry. That is some nice contrast between the sap and heartwood.

I’m really digging that pen stand too. Is that your design?

Great looking pen!
And like Eric, I like the pen stand…simple but very different.
