Thumbs up Mr. Anonymous Game #49 @ 24/01/2018

Hi everybody,

The last 2 games, the winners were decided by pure luck there is, peoples names were put in a "hat" and then one name was randomly selected. Until then, most games were based on "knowledge" mostly related to penturning, wood species and so on, the change has displeased some members and I've heard their comments/thoughts which I fully understand and respect.

There are reasons why I changed the game structure, one of which is my recent difficulty in thinking of the questions that would follow identical "pass" as previous ones, Google has made life so much easy to everyone that thinking of something that simply doesn't show up in a search with thousands of hits, is very difficult.

With that said, I decided that I would try to mix a little the old questions type and the "pot-luck" game methods, this way I satisfy everybody, I hope...!

What question am I going to ask...???

Well, I took to older pics for inspiration and in no time I had something.

QUESTION

I will attach 3 pictures, I need you to tell me what wood species produced such specimen...?


I would like to remind you all of the new conditions I introduced in game #32 and that is what actually the gift voucher amount will be spent on, and allow the actual winners to make their own choices. The only RULE that I ask you all to respect is that I allow each 1/3 of the value amount (AU$100.00) to be used for the selection of blanks/packs between the 3 main blanks types I make/sell, there is, raw/natural wood blanks, stabilized blanks/packs and Resifills (cast blanks), this means basically that you can select 1/3 of each type or all raw/natural blanks but never the voucher amount of all stabilized or Resifill blanks, I hope this has come clear if not, let me know...!

A voucher code will be sent by PM or email to the winner that will use it to put his/her's order, any freight/shipping is not included in the prize/voucher so, you will be requested at checkout to pay for posting.


Good luck...!

Cheers
George

Ha...!, I think I may have "stretched" the string a little, the first clue is in the phrase above the "QUESTION" word...!

Some time ago, (a while ago...!) I recall talking about this very root burl, I should have a thread about it but I haven't found it yet.

Anyway, lots of beautiful pen blanks come out of this root burl, some of you may recall making pens with them.

PS: All answers so far are incorrect.

Cheers
George

Its your game, your rules. If I am not happy with the format I don't have to play. Everybody has to try and control everything, thank you for doing this.
