Sorry I didn't take any pictures. I did a fountain pen for my PITH partner, never did one before. Mt partner plans on giving the pen to a priest in Italy, I hope they both are happy with the pen, I need al the help I can get from above. I also included five pen blanks consisting of wood, PR, and spectra ply.

I received 2 pens to give away from my "first" partner GlensPens. They are both beautiful pens. Not sure what kits they are but the one without the stylus (redwood burl) on it is such a smooth clicker you can't even hear it click. The ink tip comes out of the middle of the stylus on the other pen (maple burl). I also received a great assortment of blanks. A couple of fine pens and I will be proud to give them away. I gave the stylus pen away yesterday. I am a Properties Manager and met a potential tenant. This lady owns a childcare business (141 kids) and is involved with Meals on Wheels delivering meals to elderly people. She had a very outgoing personality and is very involved with her children's lives in that they are involved with softball and she is a coach. I wanted to give the pens to someone who is service oriented and felt that she was the perfect candidate as she serves the children and the elderly. Now on to find the candidate for the second pen.
Thanks Glen.

Received this stratus dressed in olivewood from Jolly Red.
Nice pen and nice job on it. I will be giving it to my brother in August at out family reunion. He also sent 2 nice blanks that I will be using in the future.
My package to him will go in the mail tomorrow.

Received these from my PITH partner Cwalker935.
The pens will be going to a great guy we have come to our Christmas light display that we do in memory of our son. He comes out a couple of times during the show for all the kids that come by. None other than Santa Claus. Cody, Thanks for the great pens and blanks.

Djrljr (Don) sent me two beautifully turned and finished pens and a bunch of great blanks. I gave the orchid blank pen to Yolanda, an administrative professional where I work. Yolanda has MS and struggles to walk with a cane. She is also a dedicated mother who works hard to balance her career and family. Despite her affliction, Yolanda is a very positive person and always brightens my day with her beautiful and ever present smile. Yolanda was thrilled with the pen. I have not yet decided what to do with the second pen.

Thank you Don.

Default July 2017 PITH

I received my beautiful work of art from my PITH partner, FlyitFast (Gordon.) Along with a beautiful setup blanks that I did not have, so back to the turning machine, darn, I wish I could remember the names of my tools.

I have never shipped international before, is it normal to take almost a month for the item to arrive? I took package to USPS on June 5th, it left Colorado and went to California. (?) Left Calif and went to New York, arrived in Italy on the 20th, and is still sitting in customs on the 27th. Don't know who long it will be before it is finally delivered.

Default pen and blanks arrive

Good evening all;
My pen and a LOT of blanks arrived from Glens Pens.
Thanks ever so much Glen, the pen immediately went to my daughter-in-law who just loves it. She thanks you so much.
Also many thanks to Glen for all the blanks, they will be put to good use. Certainly didn't expect so many, however going to make a lot of pens with them. Not a great photo of pen, however, it does show the blank and is a click pen and stylus. No wonder daughter-in-law claimed it. lol
thks again Glen
