This is the second pen I have made. I know it is nothing extra ordinary except the wood I use to make it with. This wood is from a 60 year old Sakura tree that was in Japan. The blank was sent to me along with two others, one from a 80 year old Red Keyaki tree and the other a 120 year old Blue Keyaki tree. They were sent to me from Stu Ablett, many many months ago. One of the nicest things I can remember. I didn't even know Mr. Ablett other than we frequented the same forum back than. Yes and thanks to John Hart who was his partner in crime (Stu's words).
Anyway, I will use the other blanks when I get more proficient at this pen turning business.
THANKS AGAIN MR. ABLETT! YOU THE MAN!!
