    CA finish followed by next day buffing. A really nice cherry burl. Only wish I had more of it!

    It feels great to sell a pen,
    It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

    That's a beautiful pen, Mack.... love the wood and the cigar or big ben is one of my more favorite pens to make. They show off the blank so much better than the slimmer pens do.

    great job.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Pretty sure we have some bits Algonquin Black Cherry Burl in the scrap pile under the woodstove. I'll have a look-see.
