This poll closed and results are showing. I would like to thank those that voted and added a comment or two. There is no reason for making of this poll other than I was curious as to what some of you like to see more of. Probably no value in it either but clearly segmenting of pen blanks does carry some weight here. I know and understand that a good quality pen with nice photos will stand out but deep down we all do have a favorite style. Weather you admit it or not it is there.

Making of these type blanks is far and few on this site and I really do not understand it. The free style comes in third and I do understand this takes a little bit more in ways of tools to pull off but usually will always produce a stand alone beauty. The one that surprises me is the plain wood or wood in general. It came in second. I realize that the Pretty Wood contest produces some real fine looking pens and usually burls are hands down favorites, but have to tell you during the year I am not impressed with the wood pens shown. At least not to the point of making me go WOW. Even in the contest they do not move the WOW meter. I say this because the real maker of wood pens is Mother Nature. Your artistic touch is not there. Spin it and mount it.

I took this part out of this post because it probably would have been taken wrongly and I do not want to have to explain myself for what I think. That is the reason for editing.

Anyway again I want to thank all for partaking in the survey. As I said probably means nothing but it helped me. Happy pen turning all.

I'm just wondering why you think "wood and acrylic pens have no thought or craftsmanship" in those pens?

Well you explain where the thought process is to me. I am willing to learn new things. To me mother nature took care of thinking process and whoever made the acrylic blank did the thinking on those. Now if you tell me you cast your own blanks there was a place for that and if you segment in wood there is a place for that.
