Default Three Sierras to see

Buck eye burl never ceases to amaze and impress me. I wanted a buck eye pen and just grabbed a blank from a large shopping bag of blanks. The more I turned it the better it looked. After CA glue it looked pretty darn pretty and I decided to share it. No matter how you turn it you find some figure worth examining more. I had the Nikon out so a Bethlehem olivewood and a copper rhino plastic with the copper kit came along for the ride.

It has been six weeks since surgery and I still feel like someone drives over me every day with their truck. It improves, but s l o w l y. Watch those steaks, cheeseburgers and I’ll do the same. Praise Lipitor.

All 3 are nice, but you're right about that buckeye!! On most blanks i can find a place for the clip, but every now and then--i just don't want to cover any part of the wood...this is one of those!!
