This came out great. I was really surprised by the colors and grain.
This was one of the cooler pens I’ve made. Very happy with it.

I love the mystery of this wood. You don't know what will be revealed until you carve it. Sometimes colors appear like pink or blue within the grain.

Sharp pen blank
Always keep my eyes open for stabilized burl pen blanks at Rockler's. Most of the time, such blanks are good quality; some times outstanding quality. The one in the picture is one of the latter. Good price, and the blank turned and polished easily.

Makes for a handsome looking pen!
This is by far my favorite pen blank! It looks very impressive when its used. I have made several pens and consistently get compliments and words of amazement when others see the pens completed and used.

Recently turned a nice big pen using this blank. It was stabilized well and turned very nicely. With a CA finish it came out stunning!

very nice looking
this is an extremely nice to look at piece when finished.. unfortunately, every piece in the store is twisted and bent. you could easily turn a 7mm pen but the 12mm one i was working on made it difficult to not get thin on an edge. i finally was able to find a piece that was straight enough to work and it had a knot that fell out during turning just at the finishing pass.. so i had to fill it. overall it came out nice looking but was a difficult process overall

A little under par.
The first I ordered was beautiful. These last two, not so much . They were bowed and barely long enough to make a slim line pen. I'll have to thank about ordering more.
