This is a slightly modified El Grande and Cambridge in Thuya burl. The wood is finished using HUT PPP brown and then white wax and topped with a little carnuba wax -- probably overkill on the wax. I would normally do a CA finish but this wood is so waxy that it doesn't take it very well. Anyway, the center band, or lack thereof, didn't match up as well as I would have liked but it was a good learning experience. It's still a fun pen to write with :)

All comments welcome, good or bad!
