it's all about the wood

I'll be the first to admit, when I post pix of things I've turned it's usually because I feel proud of what I did.

This isn't one of those times -- with wood like this, whatever I did to it pales into insignificance.

Indeed it is beautiful wood, but it's still a nice job on the pen!

I know what you mean. Sometimes we are just the messenger for the wood, like this piece.

I purchased a board of pomelle sapele over a year ago because I fell for the gorgeous grain. I have only used a small piece so far.

Nice pen, but gorgeoous wood.

Stunning, one could sit at a desk for an hour just studying that exquisite wood.
