Default A Must See!! Masur Birch Majestic Jr.

I believe this is my absolute favorite so far. My first time turning this wood (Masur Birch from Finland), and I have to say, I love it. Beautiful curls and quilts as well as an unbelievable grain pattern.

As always, comments and critiques are greatly appreciated.

Wow! That's spectacular. Great fit and finish.

Beautiful job. I think that kit was made for the blank.

Beautiful stuff indeed, kit and blank!

I have never used one of those kits, but I will soon as I like the way they make the nice blanks come up, and I've got some timbers (blanks) that are just asking for a kit like that. Interestingly the name Majestic in the kit, matches the name of one of my timbers, the Majestic Olive Wood! So, what you you call to a pen made with the 2 Majestics...? "Majestic on the double"?
