Oh... wait... is that just me?

Very nice and a departure from the plain vanilla that we sometimes stick to in building.
Again what wood? Your finish brings out the grain very nicely.

Great First Pen John.
If possible please keep it for yourself, and use it to Compare and Measure your Progress in this Craft.
Refer to it in the coming Weeks, Months and Years and Gauge your Progress.
I look forward to seeing your future work.
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?
