I'm very happy that you like it Steve - I really enjoyed making this pen for you.

Being cross cut and with the knot inclusions, turning this one was particularly challenging. I really felt like I had accomplished something when I managed to finish this one in one piece.

I keep watching the USS Constitution Museum Store for more wood samples, but it's been a while since they've had any available for sale.

Default Jackpot

Got my PITH from Jeff (Skeleton2014) and guess what it came in a hat.
Gold Zen w/Box Elder Burl, Antique Copper Fillibelle w/Patriotc Swirl inlace acrylester and a Gold Compact Key Ring Knife w/KOA and some sweet blanks. A BIG THANKS to JEFF for all the cool stuff.

Feel really embarrassed because my PITH swap partner (Glen/glanspens) gets his pics posted the same afternoon it arrives and I've had my package from him since 10/6!!!! My office (and photo stuff) was torn apart for part of that time, but still no excuse on my part!

Here's what Glen sent me:

Matching pair of 24k Sedonas (RB and FP) that are so nice, I'm afraid to use them!!! Got a slew of BEB, stabilized by Glen with Cactus Juice and blue dye (BEB from Rockb). He also sent along a beautiful red pine cone blank cast in Alumilite that I can't wait to try!!! Also got some Rosewood, Ebony + Etimoe segmented blank, Probably the nicest PITH I've gotten!!!

Got home today as I knew I had a package waiting. Harley2001 did not disappoint, I am totally pleased with my swap. I have never seen the "Rope Twist" done on a pen before. It holds nice in the hand and feels beautiful. Only problem is my wife took a liking to it too. This pen sure is a keeper. He even included some shipping partners. I had never seen Spalted Ebony or the Blue Mahoe. Thank you for the extras.

Well I received my package from my partner John ( John Smith ), and it is a winner! The pen is just beautiful and I love the copper finish. John also included several blanks that I can't wait to turn. Thanks again John!

Glad you like it Eric. The blank on the pen is one I cast. I did several of them ,and this is the only color I really liked. Someday I may try to do more casting.

Randy (Rounder) sent me some very nice stuff!! I'm not sure of the kit, but it is covered in one of George's banksia pod blanks. He even sent me a blank and instructions. I really enjoy these PITH's.

Glad you liked it Scotty. I hope to get pictures of your PITH gift up by this weekend. The kit is a Cabello from Smitty's Pen Works.
