    Ambonya Burl

    This a Saturn pen kit from Woodturninz. I like this kit because it shows a lot of wood. It's Ambonya Burl using Mylands and Ren for finish. This was a pen exchange pen from another forum.

    Dennis that is really nice. You dead on about the kit from what i can see. I think its a point that is often missed when pens have a lot of gold or silver etc. The aim of the wooden pen is to show of the wood and its grain and make it clear its a special item. The black helps do that by not attracting attention and having wood on the lower portion too Well done.

    Fine looking. If you don't mind a critique, using Myland's on a pen is not the best way to go. It is not a durable finish and comes off quickly with use.
