Default My Pen

I'm late getting this posted I got this stunning pen from bedangerous. Its amboyna burl. Included were some pen blanks from around the world. As a bonus he included some abalone veneer and some australian tiger snake skin. WOW! Thanks for being a great pith partner.

I've had some personal family issues of late so a bit late to the party here. I did ship off my package today to my partner penmaker1967.
The pen was for his father who also loves working with wood so I chose a hybrid using Australian burl. I also included 4 blanks of Australian timbers.

Default June 2017 PITH

Here is what I was sent from jsolie. Two great pens, my wife really loves them. She was especially tickled with the smaller pen that won't take up much space in her purse. I am also happy to get some beautiful burl blanks, can't wait to turn them. Sorry for posting this so late was out of town and today was the first chance to post this. I also wish the pictures I took were better Thanks John!

I received my package from penmaker 1967 today. I was sent an array of blanks we don't normally see here in Australia and a beautiful pen again in a kit we don't see here to be passed on to my friend. Thanks Todd

Rebecca received her PITH package from Wayne last week and was thrilled with the contents! Wayne mentioned some flaws with the pen but we aren't sure what he was talking about. It is beautifully crafted and the photos do no do justice to the 3D effect you get with the cast barley!

Rebecca chose as her recipient our good friend Chris or Tiny as the kids at church call him. He is a children's pastor with a love of teaching kids and playing basketball and pen turning though it is been many years since he has had time to turn any pens of his own. After finding out Rebecca was learning the craft from her grandpa last year, he provided her with lots of kits, blanks, and other supplies that he had to help her get started. As Rebecca's skill has grown he offers advice (when she will listen) and politely looks at any new pens this "proud mom" just has to show him.

Here is a photo of "Tiny" and Rebecca with the pen Wayne sent.

Here is a close up of the beautiful pen that Wayne sent! I'll have to get it back from Chris so I can examine it for those "flaws" Wayne mentioned.

And finally the great box of goodies he sent. There is one blank missing as Rebecca grabbed it out of the box and headed to the garage with it as soon as she saw it. The slimlines are in Rebecca's schools colors and are a shape she hasn't seen before but plans to try very soon.

Wayne thank you for being Rebecca's (PenGoblin's) PITH partner! I hope she thanked you herself, if not send me a PM and I'll remind her yet again!

Proud Mom of two young penturners
