Immaculate finishes,showroom editions displaying these timbers in the best way.

Beautiful work on the amboyna burl. What finish method did you use? Very nice!

Thanks Peter!

Thanks Michael!
I use a propolis solution to enhance the colors (I get it for free from a beekeeper, I let it dissolve in alcohol, a very similar process to shellac) and finished the pen with CA.

Is that amboyna you got what I’ve seen marketed as “golden amboyna” lately? I have a bunch of it and haven’t turned any, so I’d love to know if that’s what I get to look forward to.
Thanks!

Yes, it was sold as "golden amboyna burl". But from what I can read all amboyna burl are the from same tree species (Pterocarpus macrocarpus), just with color variations for some reason.
(The eBay seller is from Canada, really great to deal with, PM for details if you are interested and can't locate him).

I think I bought from the same guy! Including the pomelle bunting. Haha
He seems to have dropped off eBay for some time now. I always loved browsing his store for cool woods.

Having won the last Pretty Wood pen contest I can say that any one of your pens would have been a contender. The quality and composition of your photos is great. All of my photos are taken on my LG G5. If you're not familiar with focus stacking software you might find it interesting and will enable you to tweak your photos to the next level. Darn...just gave away one of my secrets!
