    An Elm To An Elm From An Elm

    A piece of Birdseye Elm on an Antique Brass GT Knurl Parker ballpoint I did up for my Grandson's graduation.
    Turned to size, sanded 400 grit, applied 2 coats of MINWAX WBOM Clear Satin Polyurethane, applied Testors Clear Waterslide Decal, applied 10 coats of MINWAX WBOM Clear Satin 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.

    Fantastic piece of wood! The decal came out really well on this as well, nice and crisp. Overall something to treasure.
