A big thanks to those who run the contests. I always look forward to them.
2 years ago a VERY large red oak tree next to my house was struck by lightning. When it didn’t bloom in the spring I had it taken down. I cut a few burls off hoping for something good.
The Long Clicker is the one I entered in the contest that piece I stabilized and only buffed. The other 3 were all from the same piece of wood but finished with CA. I took pics of the GT Knurl thinking I that may be the one to enter. But must people I asked liked the contrast on the one with no finish. For some reason the CA washed out most of the blond.
I also saved at 12 ft section from near the base. I plan to take my chain saw to it and make a bench to put out near my pond... some day.

Dale, In my opinion each of your pen/and accompanying blank is exceptional. But the long clicker is clearly the nicest. Very well done.
