This is my newest pride and joy, and the flagship of my new site – http://chathampenworks.com/. Had to figure a way to support this pen turning addiction. :-) I was lucky enough to be a tester for a new blank stabilizer, http://www.lazerlinez.com/, and I am most happy with the results. The blank is clear Buckeye Burl, finished with CA/BLO. It’s on a full-sized Majestic in Platinum & 22kt Gold.

As always, all comments and critiques are welcome, and appreciated.
Thanks,
Sef

Thanks Jerry. I had to laugh when I started putting the finish on, ‘cause I caught myself oohing and aahing.

Fantastic pen. That kit is top of the line and the buckey burl is one of the most beautifull I’ve seen. IMHO

Outstanding job. Keep it up.
