Just got home from spending Christmas Eve with my family. Found a gift from my santa waiting on the porch. Opened it with all my kids and wife oohing and ahhing at a box full of some of the most amazing wood and other materials. Almost all of which are first timers for me. I even have a piece of alternative Ivory for the very first time and a waste wood blank that is cast in Black! I don't know how much time Santa spent figuring me out but that could not have been a better choice if they had gotten advice from my wife. Right now the Kids are still arguing about who gets the pen made with the spalted Huckelberry.
Thanks Santa, your gift put an extra special moment with my family in my Christmas Eve.

Today is my lucky day after opening mine from Glenn in Chesterfield Mi (AKA oobak)
I was very surprised and happy to get a lazor cut barber pole with a sierra pen kit, 2 kaleidascope blanks (looks like black walnut), and 5 incredible wood blanks. I got Ancient Kauri, Redwood Burl, Mesquite, Bog oak, and oak from a old barn built back in the 1800's.
I could not be happier as a pen turner!!! Thanks Glenn!!! I hope everyone has had as good of a Christmas as I have. Merry Christmas to all.

Just got home after visiting my in-laws for Christmas in Mississippi and found my gift from my Secret Santa waiting for me A Jr. Statesman kit, bushings and some gorgeous pen blanks. Most of the blanks I've never even heard of, let alone worked with, so I'm in for a real treat. Thanks very much Secret Santa!

I got mine on Christmas Eve from Randy (Wolfcoast) in CT. Some very nice woods and a pen. Thanks, Randy. Everything will be put to good use. Gotta come up with something special for the book matched pieces.

Thanks again!
