Default Chittum Burl X 2

Here's a couple of Chittum Burl pens I made recently.
Chittum Burl is not easy to turn because the grain goes off in every direction at the same time. It is even more difficult to turn if it hasn't been stabilized
before turning.

The first pen is a David Broadwell Art Deco Ballpoint Pen.

The second pen is a Chrome Gatsby pen kit, using the same piece of wood as the first pen had.

The final picture is both pens together.
It's been a very long time since I turned a pen, or was even able to do so.
Thanks for looking.

Your secrets are safe with me.
There's a good chance I wasn't listening anyway.
