Default Brown Mallee Burl Liberty

A nice piece of Brown Mallee Burl I put on a Stainless Steel Liberty Kit. CA finish.

The white sapwood looked like a snake zigzagging along the blank, but the more I turned it down, the pattern started to break up. Still happy with it though.

As with the Amboyna - this is a stunning pen and photography - and I agree with talltim, each would have been excellent entries in the pretty wood pen contest.

Maybe you are holding back a 3'rd beauty ? .

Ripper mate from almost day 1 I have loved Brown Mallee Burl,it is stable,reliable with rich diversity,au contraire my friend as you turned it down it really revealed itself.The mix of sapwood is perfect and very hard to find.

Thats two special pens today to remember from down under with impact.

Kind regards Peter.
