This was my last project of 2011. I had a small cutoff slab of spalted holly (from squaring the cosmetic brush blank) that was too pretty for the scrap bin.

Top panel is Spalted Holly. Sides are Walnut. Insert is felt covered MDF.

The pen is Spalted Maple Burl cap cast with two-color aluminite gold Jr. Gent II Rollerball.

Thanks for looking.

A look at my scrap bin might cost you a little. 8-)
