I finally took this pen off of the planning board and made it.  It is a large sized Richland made from redwood lace burl and black resin.  This is a retirement/going away gift for somebody at work.  This isn't my favorite wood by far, but as redwood trees are part of what this area of the country is known for, I thought this would be a meaningful material for this pen.  I look forward to getting back to my resin :lticaptd:

 

The wood has some mineral staining on the barrel, which is either a positive or a negative depending on preference. 

 

I wrote this up on my blog if you care to read a bit about how it is made.  I'm also happy to answer any questions here.  Comments/critiques also welcome as always.

Oh, how magnificent! I am just drooling here! Don't let my brother see that. He's  been after me to make him a wood pen forever. Redwood, too!  Love, love, love it! Simple, clean, and strong.  :wub:
