    Tried a couple new things!

    This is clear Maple with Walnut inlay and Centerband. This is my first attempt at doing either inlay or centerband. Let me know what you think!

    Wow Ed that is beautiful. The bands really set that pen off. I am wanting to try something like that. Great job.

    You did great. Inlays are neat and I really like the matching cap and centerband. You took a fairly ordinary style and turned it into a show-off pen. What kit is that? I don't recognize the clip.

    Thanks guys. This was fun and the result is pretty rewarding. I really want to expand on this idea in the future.

    Frank, the kit is the black cap euro from Woodcraft.

    Very nice, Ed. Like Frank said, you took a pretty ordinary kit and made it something special.

    Beautiful!
    That's what it's all about Ed. Take the ordinary and make it your own.

    Wonderful work!
