Can we have an over-the-top custom stand to go with the pen, or do we need to keep it casual with more standard props like the clear stands?

Better check your dates. You are posting the contest before it is closing.

I always worry about that.

Default All the kit?

Is it a requirement that you use every piece of the kit in the pen you submit?

I know this is a great contest. Great pens made by the members.


HOWEVER....

There are jus 7 days left to get the youngest turners pen entries in.
Don't forget to help the kids win prizes also.
Besides, it is fun to build a memory!
