Default Pretty wood pen entry

And loser! My expectations were low, but after running auctions for a few years, I wanted to try something different. So I entered this pen. Rosewood (Thanks Mark) on a Gun Metal Atrax from Beartoothwoods.

Two coats of thin CA, five coats of medium CA, wet sanded 400, 600 and all MM pads through 12000. No polish. Thanks for looking.

My impression of your fine pen is that it presents an understated elegance...and I love it!

Sometimes a pen such as this may not take the prize in a Bash competition, yet it so excellent in its own right. Very nice!

Thank you Steve. Your comment confirmed my vision for this pen. Rosewood is a very nice species.

Thanks Mark! Can you tolerate it after it's turned and coated with CA?

Not sure. But I have many 100's of other blanks - more than my lifetime.
