The challenge:  I was asked by a federal judge if I could make a custom fountain pen from the bamboo grown in his backyard garden.  He sent  many stalks, and I kept them sealed for months so that they could dry slowly over time without cracking.  Once the bamboo was properly dried, I selected the perfect section, and joined the cap and barrel using a Gaboon ebony coupler.  I used a special black titanium section to house the nib.
