    Russian Perfect Fit

    Gold Twist Ballpoint dressed in Russian Olive from some dead limbs trimmed from a tree in my sons back yard.
    Sanded to 12,000 MM, applied 6 coats of Minwax Gloss Poly and 2 protective coats of Brazilian Caranuba.

    As always comments and or suggestions appreciated.
    Thanks for looking.

    That came out looking real pretty, Les. I like making the Perfect Fit pens. I have a good success ratio with them, they're not too costly, and they make a nice-looking pen.

    Very nicely done, Les.
    Why has common sense
    become so uncommon?
