Hi folks, been a while but thought I’d post a picture of a pen I made sometime last month. This was one I was excited to see how it turned out. I stabilized some red mallee burl and really probably could have just sanded and buffed it as-is, but I gave it a CA finish and threw a Bock nib on it. I think balancing the pen on the cap for the picture may have been the most tedious part lol. Anyway thanks for looking, hope you like it.

-- John
