I made this pen for a pen swap earlier this year, it is timber from a local tree

The CA finish gave me a lot of trouble because of the hotter than normal summer.

I picked this blank out of a mob of wood I cut up for a bloke in Adelaide, out of all that I cut up there was two like this and I accidently sent the other one down south. :vangry:

You have realy done justice to a nice piece of wood. If you want a holiday you can stay with me just bring the rest of the tree :funny: :funny:

The rest of the tree is sitting in the front yard much to the disgust of a certain member of the house hold.
All going well next year will be in your country next year got a mate in Dunedin I want to catch up with.
