Pennyleaf Rosewood, AKA Dalbergia sissoo
This is my #3 for the "May Challenge".
A piece of Pennyleaf with a bit of sapwood showing, on a Stainless steel Eagle Rollerball from Lazerlinez.
Finished as per my newly developed proceedure for this timber to prevent the oils/colour muddying the grain.
The first pic is taken in natural light, beside my house. The others are in my LED lightbox.

The pen looks pretty special. The modified finishing regime seems to be very effective. Excellent!Mobyturns

Thanks Moby. Yeah, the new finishing process is a keeper. No more worrying about turning the sapwood brown. The sapwood on this pen has some spalting , that’s why it has some darker bits.Brad.

Now that is bloody outstanding Brett.
Love the sapwood, figure and contrasting colours your display with this wood style and finish.

That's really nice looking piece of wood and very nicely photographed. My personal preference is the outdoor shot but they all look good.
Your new finishing procedure, is that a trade secret or have I missed something?Cheers,

Thanks Dallas. Yes the natural lighting has a lot going for it, when nature cooperates.
The new procedure for finishing the Dalbergia's, and Pennyleaf in particular, is in this thread - Dalbergia sissoo AKA PennyleafBrad.
