Congratulations. You have utilised a nice bit of wood to it's full advantage. A good example of moving from craft to art.

Yes Gary, cross cut Olive wood "can" be stunning...!

Interestingly, you don't see good Olive wood pen blanks on sale (stores, etc...!) cut in any other style but straight cut (with the grain), I have made many good Olive wood blanks cut in cross and diagonal and people don't seem to be interested, for whatever reason, which is strange really, when they can look as impressive as the pen shown here...!

Cross cut Olive wood is not easier to work with than most cross cut woods, they can be extremely fragile, requiring always some extra care, which our French friend patmurris done a top job with...!
