Default Emboyna Burl Fountain pen - my first fountain pen

I have just completed my first fountain pen. I've been sitting on this Windsor kit I got from The Golden Nib (TGN) for a long time. I just did not have the time or tools to make it. It required 31/64" and 33/64" bits, which I finally got. I also splurged on the Amboyna burl blank for this pen. I am very glad I did. It is absolutely some of the most beautiful wood I have seen. Pen came out really well I think. There are lots of modifications I could do for my next one, I think. A closed end comes to mind, but I am still learning...
