    A great looking piece of Australian Brown Mallee with a Titanium Gold Longwood Cigar.
    Sanded to 400x, burnished and buffed with turned wood shavings and Ultrafine Steel Wool.
    Finished with 6 coats of MINWAX Clear Gloss Polyurethane.

    Very nice, Les. I've got a walnut pen that I'm getting ready to try your poly finish on in the next day or two. I can only hope it comes out as nice as this one did.
