There are 23 entries into the Pretty wood pen contest this year. I will divide them into 2 polls, the top 5 of each poll will run off in a final poll. Vote for 3 of your favorite pens in each poll. Make sure you come back at the end of the week and vote in the final round.

I was lucky enough to get some of these blanks from a Gary Max (hi Gary) years and years ago. I have shared a bit of it in past Piths but have never turned some of the darker more figured pieces.

Be aware that there was a mistake in the poll earlier and I had to add PEN 10 to the Bottom of the list. If your choices include either of those two pens take care in which one your choosing.
