It doesn’t matter how many have posted before, I like seeing what others create as it gives me design ideas and often times I will see something and think, Good Idea, i would have never thought of that. Thanks for posting.
And nice writing instrument

Never heard of palisander before now , so I looked it up…..a tree by any other name is just as good : )

Dalbergia retusa (Caviuna, Cocobolo, Cocobolo Prieto, Funeram, Granadillo, Jacarandáholz, Nambar, Nicaraguan Rosewood, Palisander, Palissandro, Palo Negro, Pau Preto, Rosewood, Urauna) is a plant species in the genus Dalbergia. It is known to produce the wood called cocobolo. It is a fair-sized tree, reported to reach 20–25 m in height.

it doesn’t look like a ‘try’ to me

looks more like a ‘do’

glad you are enjoying your time in the shop

Great job on your first pens! I love turning them. Satisfaction in an hour or so. Keep up the good work. I look forward to one million two, one million three…
