Well the bar is set high for this exchange. Seer sent me this beautiful Jr George roller ball with a fountain nib also in the package was several awesome blanks that I cant wait to turn. Pen is dressed in Desert Ironwood. Absolutely gorgeous pen and my photo is just a quick snap with the cell phone. I'll add another when I get out to the shop later in week.

Wow! The pressure is on! Tom aka: tomtedesco sent me a .30 Cal Bolt Action pen made from remnants of a friendís walnut tree casted in PR. But wait thereís more he also sent a matching bottle stopper! Then on top of all that some very cool blanks, one of which the wife has claimed for a new seam ripper.


Thanks Tom!

This is the one that I received from Cody Elliott (wce274). It's a Ambrosia Maple that was cut from a local farm and blank that is the same. Absolutely beautiful!

Default Got mine

Received my PITH exchange from bjbear76 yesterday. A great looking pen made with wood from the Shawshank Tree featured in the movie "The Shawshank Redemption", which in my opinion was a great movie. Also several blanks that will make excellent pens.
Especially the cast blank, which are the school colors of the school where my wife worked.
The pen that I sent bjbear76 was made from wood that came from the tree that was the namesake for the school, "Live Oak High School". The tree had to be taken down because it was dying and had become a safety hazard. It was estimated to over 200 years old and the removal was a very sad day for the community and alumni that had attended the school.

Another great PITH exchange, they keep getting better and better.

Here's the pen I received from bmac. As he described in a couple posts above, the wood came from an old live oak that had to be taken down. Unbeknownst to Bobby, I had helped my parents clear their property of downed live oaks when hurricane Ivan went through the Pensacola area. I'd often thought about all that wood going to waste. Well, now I have a beautiful pen made from that species.
The pen box that the pen came in is made from spalted hackberry. The craftsmanship on both the pen and box is just outstanding.
Also enclosed were some spalted hackberry, live oak, and a piece of sinker cypress dating back to the 1800's.
I sure am glad I was part of this PITH. Thanks again Bobby.

Default November 2017 PITH Pictures

Today got my "stuff" from Mike 4066
When I say WOW that is an understatement
of the largest kind!

A beautiful rollerball dressed in Buckeye burl "from the Buckeye State".
And six of the nicest blanks I could hope for.
Banksia Pod and Alumanite; Shark vertebrae + Alumanite; Blue dyed Maple burl and Alumanite; Mini pine cones in resin; Sweet gum pod in resin and a stabilized blank of historical wood from the Thomas Lee house in CT ca 1660.
All blanks cast and stabilized by my benefactor - Mike 4066. I have not gotten into casting ad stabilizing so these mean a lot to me.
