I received my PITH from Gregory (Skie_M) on Thursday. He sent three Mesquite blanks, two Japanese yew blanks, two alabaster stone blanks, and a fantastic segmented blank made from Western Red Cedar (lower barrel) and Mesquite (upper barrel) from the family land.

Here's a closer photograph of the fantastic pen. I mentioned to Skie_M that he did a great job with the segmenting. The segments are nice and tight, I didn't see gaps, and the pattern is attractive. I think the different material for the top gives it a good visual balance.

Thank you Skie_M for being a great PITH pal, and thank you SSobel for running the PITH.

Than you liljohn1368 for the stunning pen and the awesome home brew blanks.I'm looking forward to getting these beauties on my lathe. I have to say, the pictures don't do them justice.

Are you kidding me? My grand daughter has tried to steal this pen 4 times already! I had to promise to make her one from of the other blanks you cast. :)

My cousin's daughters are always tryin to be thievin the breast cancer awareness pens that I make, just because they think they are so very pretty .... they're only around 8 - 10 years old and don't really know what the pens are supposed to represent, they just love the colors and the shiny pink and gold glittery parts! :)


That reminds me, I grabbed a pair of the new mini breast cancer awareness pens to make, and I wanted to try seeing how one looks in Kirinite Magenta Pearl...

My PITH package arrived last week, and I've been remiss in not posting these sooner. Jason (Argo13) did an outstanding job on these pens, and saved the Caballero from certain disaster. He also included some really sweet blanks, including a piece of TruStone.

Received my PITH yesterday from Schroedc. He sent a beautiful Concava wrapped in teak. The blanks look to be another piece of teak and a nice piece of purple heart. Thank you sir,
