    A Sedona Rollerball pen turned with Curly Sugar Maple dyed with aniline dye from LV. The plating is Black Titanium Gold.

    Both pens have 7 coats of Minwax 4 hr dry poly, wet mm'd 4,000 - 12,000 grade and finished up with 2 coats of Hut's Ultra Gloss Plastic Polish.

    It feels great to sell a pen,
    It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

    Hey Mack very nice!
    The Black Titanium plating is a great match for both the
    Sierra and the Sedona.
    Great finish and photos too.

    Innovation is the process that renews something that already exists and not, as is commonly assumed, the introduction of something new.

    Mack, those are wonderful!

    Hi Les; Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. I should be as generous to your posts, but I get so very tired repeating myself. You and I know your stuff is awesome!! Not only the quality, but the quantity as well.

    Gorgeous pens, Mack. Beautiful job on the Celtic Knot.
    Why has common sense
    become so uncommon?

    Hi Larry; It's a privilege to have met you and to be called an old coot by you.
    it must be your new hat that makes them turn out so well
    That new hat has definitely improved my penturning. My wife will not allow me to wear it to bed though!
