Default Spalted Dyed Pecan (I think) Rollerball

Spalted Dyed Pecan (I think) Jr. Gent Rollerball

I submerged one end of the blank into red dyed cactus juice, then the other half into green dyed cactus juice. I think it turned out kinda cool.

Very nice, I like the spalting and the two colors. Turning and finish are well done as well. Good job!

A Very Pretty Pen Steve.
Excellent Blank, Good Fit and Finish, the Twin Dying was a Great Idea.
IMHO I would prefer to see a Slighter Profile of the Blanks,
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?

Wow, I logged on to see my pen on the front page! Wasn't expecting that. I don't know how this happens, but many thanks to whomever put my humble effort on the front page.
