Default Birds eye Huon Pine JR Emperor

On my last visit to Taiwan, I stopped by Dayacom's office to inspect the new Australiana series pens that was being made for me.

During the visit, I was asked by Dayacom to make some pens for them with Australian timbers so that they could display it in their offices and maybe on their website.

Been very busy lately so its taken me a while to get behind a lathe. Here is one of the pens that is going to be sent to Taiwan.

Birds eye Huon Pine also known as Burl Huon.

Huon pine is Australia's oldest living tree and is one of the oldest living organisms on earth. Individuals have been known to reach an age of 3,000 years. Fossil records from a tree found in a boggy area in the southwest of Tasmania were dated at 3,462 years. Only the bristle-cone pine of North America exceeds it in age.

Sanded to 400 grit, 20 coats of thin CA. Then 400 grit Micro-mesh to 12,000, Brasso and automotive polish/wax.

Was going to make an excuse to Dayacom that the kit was destroyed and put it in my own collection. Love the Huon, I have got to make some more of it.

As always, your comments or suggestions is always appreciated.

That's a great looking pen! Dayacom should be proud to have such a lovely pen to grace their offices!
