    New style pen and finish

    Ultra Cigar with spalted, stabilized mango. I finally broke out my airbrush and used a giftcard I had for some WTF at Woodcraft. Wrote up the process on IAP. Although I wouldn't recommend airbrushing for a pen, size vs waste, it gave a very smooth, satin finish. Thanks for looking and C&C used on the next one!

    A mango cigar. Sounds like something out of Blazing Saddles. No, wait. That was Mongo, not Mango.

    Nice-looking pen, Jim.
