    Titanium Gold Cigar

    Double Twist Ballpoint dressed in Australian Fiddleback Red Gum.
    This is one of the blanks that was generously sent to me by John (gawdeplus ). Thanks again John!

    Finished with 6 coats of Minwax Clear Gloss Polyurethane.
    As always comments and or suggestions appreciated.
    Thanks for looking.

    Beautiful pen, Les. And your finish is spectacular.
    I like the way you didn't mess with the intended lines of the Cigar.
    Well done.

    The finish is spectactular!!!!!! Is is a series of steps, messy, time consuming and last but not least, durable? I would love to find some different finishing techniques for my students and I haven't ever used this. Fit and finish are bot flawless along with great photography!!
