It was a Gentleman fountain made with a faux ivory (not the kind you get from pen catalogs, a special material) [and, no, I won't reveal what it was, just that it was hard as granite to turn but takes a beautiful patina with use, hard to tell from real ivory].
OK, I have had a change of heart. It was a little selfish of me to post that without sharing what material I used. Actually, very simple. I used a faux ivory micarta purchased from a knife making supplier. I think it was Jantz. As I said above it is a beautiful material that far more closely resembles real ivory than the plastic stuff sold by the pen kit suppliers. Turning this stuff is not an easy project but end results are, IMHO, knock out beautiful. Go for it. Post pictures if you actually make anything from it.
