Default Turkish Walnut Burl

I received this Turkish Walnut Burl pen blank years ago in a swap. Found a Churchill Rollerball kit in the drawer and though it might be a good match.
First 3 photos taken with my diffused LED lights, the last one is taken in natural light in the shade beside my house.
The pen has a CA finish.

Beautiful work. The burl and your finish are indeed perfect. I very much like the shape you turned...it is just right for this component set. I appreciate the different lighting; LED and natural. Each brings out different qualities of your pen.

Thanks for your feedback Steve.
The different lighting both have their strengths and drawbacks, just have to try and make the most of what you have.
I think this kit needs a bold timber to make it really shine, this one came close.
