Very nicely done. I love the grain in this pen. You certainly have a knack for making some interesting and eyecatching projects. Once again, fantastic work.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

Great result - I really like the look of this pen.

(I'm getting a headache trying to work out how I'd make one, though!)
