Default A blank I couldn't give away!

This is a Woodcraft gold artists sketch pencil dressed in an early formulation of my Go Gators! blank. No one in my wood turning club would take the blank as a freebie and it went into a box of rejects, till I needed a birthday present for my nephew.

It has an slight hour-glass figure from the tip-end.

Sorry for the photo.

I like the small swirls in the blank, they look cool. Makes for a nice gift.

Pure class Charles! The colors float on each other. Some people just cannot imagine the possibilities. It's their loss!! VERY nice job.

Very cool I'm glad you posted that! One of the pens I'll be turning tomorrow is one of your Gator blanks. It's a Christmas gift for a friend in St. Augustine. After seeing how nice they turn out I know he'll be pleased.
