Default Redwood Burl cigar/lathe drilled

Here's a cigar pen I made from some of Wolfdancer's Lace Redwood Burl.
Thanks again, Rod!

Turned between centers and drilled on the lathe. Check out how accurately centered the hole was drilled. Sanded to 1500 wet/dry automotive paper.
I used several coats of CA, sometimes adding a BLO wipe down between coats.
Buffed with EEE Ultrashine and white diamond. (First time buffing .... needs some work)
Comments welcome, thanks for looking.
