What I love about this pen so much is one half has the burl, with the other half with straighter grain. The dark strip going between those sections makes it really pop. Excellent execution!

Beautiful wood grain pattern on this piece. It reminds me of the thermal pools in Yellowstone. Very Nice!!!

Thanks for all the kind words. I’ll ask the guy who gave me the wood if he has more; if so I’ll share.

Magnificent Pen Mark,
You Certainly won with the gift of that Apricot Burl, regardless of what restorative work you had to do. It is Stunning.
Great Work with the Turning, Restoration, and Finish. Truly Beautiful and Masterful!
I would see if he had anymore, but then again I am Greedy.
Congratulations, my friend.
Turn that special piece of Timber you have been keeping.
Enjoy it for its true beauty.
Why leave it for others to enjoy without you?
