Thumbs up

I got my PITH package yesterday from Tom (tomtedesco)! Everything looks great! This is the first PITH I've taken part in. Thank you, Tom, for making it a great one!

I've got a Sierra Button Click pen with a shredded money blank (great choice back painting it a nice forest green)! I haven't even made one of these kits before, so it's a great start for my PITH collection! I got a couple spectraply blanks (also never used these before) and I'm excited to try them out! I think a couple of these blanks were made by Tom and they've got some great depth and color to them! I'm not 100% sure about the two wood blanks, but I think one is walnut. No clue what the other one is, but it's got great figure on it (see the first picture)!

Again, thanks a bunch Tom! Such an early bird! I hope you like what I've sent!

Default Swap with Jon Tello

Received my PITH Swap pen from Jontello today. WOW! What a partner!!
Not only did Jon send a Rollerball pen to knock your socks off, but he also included a awesome group of blanks.
Attached are pictures of the pen and blanks he sent.
Thank you Jon.

Also, Thank you to Steven (SSobel) for organizing this Swap and to IAP for all the promotions for members. This is a great way to enjoy the work of other members and a great way to "meet" new friends.

Default PITH from Edgar

Here's my PITH Pen and Goodies From Edgar. A Zen Roller Ball dressed up in Cross Cut Philippine Acacia. He tossed in a nice acrylic blank along with several Pecan and Camphor. The others are label and you can see in the picture. The pecan burl looks awesome and I'll have to make a special pen with it.

Thanks Edgar. Good job.

I need to redo the finish on the pen I'm sending your way. Should go out before the weekend.

Thanks Vic, I'm glad you like it.

The Ph Acacia blanks came from a cutting board that I picked up on my last trip to Hawaii - I think they call it Roadside Acacia over there.

Unfortunatly the pictures doesn't show the color change as the light hits it at different angle. Chatoyance doesn't rely define it.
