    Wormy Persimmon

    With Swirl Alumilite...made by ElMostro(IAP) that I received from Scott- SDB777 in a box full of pen blanks. Thanks Scott!

    Dressed up in a Titanium Gold Longwood Cigar.

    Sanded to 400x, burnished with turned shavings, buffed with Ultrafine Steel Wool, filled voids with Med CA sanding dust slurry, sanded to 400x, buffed with Ultrafine Steel Wool, and applied 6 coats of MINWAX Clear Gloss Polyurethane.
    No MM, polish or buffing required with this MINWAX finish.

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

    Great looking, Les. So it's wood that's been treated with something?

    Thanks Cynthia.
    The Persimmon with worm holes has been impregnated with colored Alumilite using either pressure or vacuum.
