Well turned, matched, photographed. I don't see any room for improvement from the photo. Great job!

You did well with that. Not all materials are easy to turn. But, often, with patience you can end up with a gem. The most expensive pen I ever sold ($300.00) was a piece of faux ivory (not the usual stuff in pen catalogs) that was like turning granite. But the end result was a knock-out.

I really appreciate all the positive feedback. New to this casting thing and have had a few duds but that's part of the learning process. I don't dislike it just wasn't sure what others would think of it.

Again Thanks!

I think it looks cool. It kind of reminds me of an amoeba or cell during mitosis.
