    LSU Graduation Gift

    My daughter in law wanted me to make a pen and box for her brother who is graduating from LSU with a MBA. And this is what I come up with. The pen is a cigar made of dyed box elder burl from AS and the box is purpleheart and yellowheart. Both were engraved and she was very pleased with them.

    Very nice. If I recall correctly, LSU's colors are purple and gold.

    Go into the world and do well. But more importantly, go into the world and do good.

    Very nice, Bobby. That'll go over real well I'm sure.
