    Benefit Auction

    This is a pen and box that I made for a benefit auction being held for our neighbors son who was in a serious motorcross accident over the summer. He is on the road to recovery but still has some surgeries to go through. The pen is a Jr. Gentlemen II in dyed blue box elder burl from AS. The box is made is made made out of mesquite.

    All three are great:The pen, the box, and your gesture to help the neighbor's son.
