    Perfect Fit

    Titanium gold ballpoint dressed up a really nice piece of Figured Maple from Bill Young.
    Sanded to 400x, burnished using wood shavings mixed in with extra fine steel wool. Applied 6 coats of MINWAX Satin OMWB Polyurethane using my "Dipping Method".

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

    You did yourself proud Les.

    That wood color really goes great with the gold tone.

    Enjoy,

    Another fine one, Les. I like making the Perfect Fit kit. Simple, relatively fool-proof, and attractive.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
