Thanks cwolfs69.... I don't have a patent but rather I'm willing to share my "not so secret" secrets to how I made the butterfinger pen.

As far as dymonwood.... I have other woodworking interests and I took scrap from one of my other projects for a first pen. The wood is actually (and I hope your listening OOPS) pallet wood I got in Spokane at one of my customers sites. It is some sort of oak.

I have a big long story why my pens are the way they are but in the interest of not putting anyone to sleep, I kept it short.

I do have a large bin of 1x1x6 Ipe cut offs that I am willing to trade if anyone is interested.... but I'm sure that's for another forum.

This is a pen I made on Wednesday. I made it for a friend of mine that has a mixed family. She is Canadian (white maple) her husband is African American (iron wood) and the lower tube is bamboo to represent their kids.

When I gave this to her, she was so excited, I got a huge hug out of her.... I need to make more pens that generate hugs!

Thanks everyone for the warm welcomes... I have been doing this all on my own for the past 10 months... but now that I have joined the IAP (or should I say pen makers anonymous).... I see now have many friends I have out there with the same addiction.... and I know nothing but good can come from this.

After looking around the forums, I have an idea on a pen and I can't wait to see if I can successfully make it and share with you all.

I will continue working on my PENmanship..
