Smile Radiance Holo..Topaz

I had some time today and a few of Tim McKenzie's blanks..
I just wanted to work with the material and make a basic custom pen.
Was very impressed with the ease of turning, drilling, tapping, threading with the material. Taking pictures to show how pretty the material was a bit challenging. Was nice to take a break from work and have fun!

Both the pen and the blank are excellently done!
To me, the blank says “inter-stellar”! The black/blue blend with the stars is great.

Nice! I bought 4 sticks from Tim a few weeks ago but haven't had a chance to do anything with them yet -- I see that I have plenty to look forward to

Gorgeous Pen Doc,
Magnificent Blank, Excellent Profile and Proportion,
Beautifully Turned, and Threaded, Terrific Section.
Outstanding Work my Friend.
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?
