I received my package today, and, wow, Leo did an awesome job on the not one, but two pens. My wife is a big fan of click pens, and he really pulled out all the stops.

One of the pens, which I'm guessing is a Gatsby, is made from what appears to be dyed maple or similar wood.



The other pen is a nice looking very swirly acrylic.



My wife is very happy with the pens.

Leo also included a good variety of other blanks, too.



There are two maple, cherry burl, red mallee burl, two BEB, lacewood, olive, and a segmented blank.

Thanks, Leo!

It finally arrived.

My partner was tomtedesco. He was probably the first to send his package out. The only thing was that it was on the other side of the world. Things take a little bit here in Italy. Just got the package today. It is a beautiful fountain pen for one of the pastors of my church I am working at here in Italy. The wood is beautiful. And excited to turn some of the blanks that came with it. Thanks Tom

Package arrived today from Italy. Jontello outdid himself, beautiful segmented and knurled pen with great looking blanks. I presented the pen to my firefighter neighbor and explained the PITH to him. He was very impressed with pen and asked me to convey his thanks. I enjoyed this PITH and hope to participate again. Thanks Jon, you made it fun.

Got my pen and blanks a week ago but couldn't take pictures until now.
Mentioned to Richard that I planned to share his created pen with a service member. He came up with a beautiful pen honoring a Purpleheart recipient. Fortunately I have someone in mind who gave so much.
Thank you Richard for the perfect pen. And thank you for the interesting blanks, including two that you cast.

Those are great pens, blanks, and stories! Sad I missed out on this, but definitely want to participate in the next PITH. Really cool idea to help build the community.

Received my box from Ozturner and promised I would post a picture. Not that good a photography yet, but here are the pics. Beautiful pen and some Australia blanks for some future projects.

I received my pen & blanks from RBStallings (Robert Stallings) this week. Robert hit the nail on the head with this one. The pen is a Cigar Pen made from a Jim Beam Whiskey Barrel blank & is perfect for my recipient. The fit & finish is spot on & he sent me a Jim Beam blank along with some other really neat blanks.

My recipient is my cousin, Butch Dohmann, who has been a chuck wagon cook for many years. He is an engineer who went to Texas A&M and is now retired. Since retirement, he has opened a chuck wagon catering business (SoupBone Cattle Company) and is able to spend even more time with his chuck wagon activities - most of which are for charity events and fund raisers, especially for Wounded Warrior projects. He also makes a great Santa Claus and entertains hospitalized kids & nursing home seniors every year.

Thanks, Robert - you did a fantastic job and I know that Butch will really appreciate it. Your pen will go out in Monday's mail.

Edgar

James, Thank you so much for Posting the Photograph of the Pen, as I mentioned, in my haste to send it across the Pacific, I overlooked taking a Photograph, Now I have one for my file.
Your Photographs are Excellent.
Thank you again my friend.
Sincerely,
Brian.

Default My PITH Partner Blew Me Away

I received today, the Parcel from my PITH Partner "blade.white" and I was "Blown Away".
On opening the Weighty Parcel, I found that it contained,
57 Blanks, Wood and Acrylic (Wow),
2 Razor Kits,
15 Various Pen Kits,
1 Glorious Pen made from a Beautiful Burl, I am not aware of the Hardware Kit or Burl,
1 Beautiful Pen Made from Acrylic Blank, and
1 Magnificent Razor Made from a Fantastic Burl, with a Silver Cigar Label attached.
These last three Items were contained in 3 Spectacular Leather Cases.

James, Your Generosity has Overwhelmed Me, and Your Kindness is Mind Blowing,

Your Use of Materials, the Turning and Finish of the Items is Superb.

I haven't decided what I will do with the Acrylic Pen, I think My Sister In Law will probably receive it and I am sure She will be Delighted.

I will probably keep the Burl Pen, and Razor for my own use.

Having lifted the Weighty Parcel, I can see why you said in your PM, advising me that Parcel was on it's way, that you probably would post anything to Australia again, with that weight, I can see Why.

Again, Thank You for Participating, and Creating for me such Special Items, and for your Outstanding Generosity with all the Blanks, and Kits.
Kindest regards,
Brian.
