Pen commission

I've received a commission from an author friend of mine to turn two pens for her.  I sent her 5 pens to hold in her hand and get a feel for which ones felt best to her.  Her decision was that the Cigar style was most comfortable due to the minor arthritis she has in her hands.

So, I'll be making two Cigar style pens with a satin gold finish.  The wood she's chosen is a two tone Box Elder Burl in violet and gold.  The supplies are en route to me and I hope to get working on it this weekend.
