Finally, got a picture of the newest pen off the lathe. My favorite wood to make a pen out of: Spalted Curly Mango. The style is Jr. Statesman II. This stuff is so hard to find, the last time I was able to get a few pieces of it was 3 years ago.

Very nice. I’ve never seen that wood before and it really is very striking with that kit. Great matching of the two :)
