Default Pine Cone Glacia

I found this pine cone on the sidewalk at the mall. Squirrels had chewed the petals off so it was a matter of just straightening the core and trimming it down to size. As I began turning it down I had a snag at the small end and could not find the piece to glue it back on. I replaced the damaged end with a piece of Ketalox. The finish is CA with a coat of neutral shoe polish.

Great Recovery Larry.
Spectacular Pen, Beautiful Fit and Finish.
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?
