    Another Baron

    Sterling Silver with Birdseye Maple and African Blackwood.
    This is the second one of these I have done. Sold the first one.
    Finished with 6 coats of Minwax Clear Gloss Poly.
    As always comments and or suggestions appreciated.
    Thanks for looking.

    That is wonderful in it's simplicity Les!

    Sometimes, the pens get too "Busy" for me, sometimes simple is very nice indeed!

    As always, your pens are fine. I like your finishes.
    I have made plenty of the Baron's, it is a good design.
    But, I feel I 'graduated' when I started making Jr. Gents and full sized Gents. You may want to consider trying those styles also and/or the more elaborate Statesman series.

    Very nice, Les. I really like the addition of the blackwood.

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

    Nicely done Les.
    Do you seal the wood with something first or just start with straight poly?
