Dyed Maple Burl Executive Pen

P1150020-3This pen is made with the Executive kit with a gun metal finish and a piece of Maple burl. The gun metal finish sets off the colours added to the wood. With one long piece of wood the pen is long enough for a large hand and thick enough for comfort. This is the second pen I made in the demonstration at the Greater Vancouver Woodturners Guild October 23rd meeting. An initial application of blue, sanded to expose some of the natural wood colour and then yellow applied on top. Alcohol was again used to blend the colours even more.
