    Majestic jr in cocobolo

    I thought I better post something before Vaughn suspects I traded the lathe for another gutiar! I have a couple of small HF's to post later this week and then down to Florida for sunshine or OJ, and a visit with my cousin and his wife.
    I dont usually do these showbiz type pens, but this was a request from a guy who was very kind to me when I was down a few yrs back, and now his mentor has been given a nasty diagnosis and readying for the treatment protocols. A chance to say thank you.

    Majestic jr fountain pen: Rhodium and Black T/N on cocobolo. Shellac and EEE paste polish. I left it out in the sun for a day, hoping to get a red streak going, but alas it just looks like the king of the rosewood clan.....

    Ooh! That is sweet. I'm sure it'll be a very appreciated gift.

    (And no worries...I know you ain't gonna sell your lathe. You're hooked as bad as the rest of us.)

    Lovely pen and a nice gesture.

    Enjoy the sand and surf, and be sure to pick up some nice wood while you're down there.

    Innovation is the process that renews something that already exists and not, as is commonly assumed, the introduction of something new.

    Wow, very nice. I love cocobolo and how it can vary in colour and grain. Nice to see the Majestic Jr. too as i want to get the starter package to try. Thanks for sharing.
