I, for one, had a great time and learned quite a bit. If nothing else, as a beginner, it was great having more experienced brains on hand to pick. Thanks for putting this together, and I look forward to doing it again.

I hope everyone had a good time,I know i did. Several people had other commitments and could not stay all day but we were glad to see everyone no matter how long they were here.This was our largest group yet and had four states represented.We had people from Oklahoma driving over an hour, Texans from as far as Dallas, People from Bossier city,La., and people out of Arkansas from as far away as Morrilton. It was really nice to put a face to several IAP members that I only knew from reading their posts. I would like to say a special thank you to everyone that donated to the door prizes. Everyone was so generous that the only people that left without a door prize were the ones that left before the drawing and they would have had one too since we enough that several people got two prizes.

I had a great time, and I want to send out a special thanks to Mac and Don for sticking around and helping me with a special first pen that I had been having troubles with. I turned the wood 2 times at my house with blow ups each time, and then another blow up at Don's place, but we got it all together on try #4. That darn black walnut was just sooooooo dry. Even #4 had it's own problems, but it is a special pen so all is good.

This pen was a really special one due to the fact that my grandfather, who introduced me into woodworking passed away a year and a half ago now. He was creamated, and his urn was made of this piece of wood. So I thought it fitting, to make a pen out of the same wood. The problem was that it was really really really dry, and kept blowing up on me. Even after we got all finished with the pen, and pressed it together, it cracked, as you can see in the first picture on the cap end. I want to send a thanks out to Mac and Don though, as it would have not been possible for me to get it done by myself.

Here she is:

Well, I guessed I missed out on a lot of fun and hospitality. I'll try not to get sick before the next meeting. Betty (SWMBO) had a great time and enjoyed meeting many of you.

Patiently waiting for the next one.
