I was a Day 4 Trivia Contest winner and got this awesome flat-top tool rest from Rick Herrel (rherrel). I also took advantage of Rick's 20% Bash Discount and ordered one of his offset sanding jigs & a couple of his pin chucks.

This was my first encounter with Rick's products. I've read a lot about them here on IAP but had never seen any first-hand. His work is amazing and his prices are very reasonable. The tool rest is so smooth & shiny, I almost hate to scratch it up.

Thanks Rick! :)

1st Place is always the Goal, BUT!!!!

Sarah! You Rock!

Sarah (DWulf) may be new to pan making but she has impeccable taste in blank selection. I've made a lot of pens but have never seen some of these woods. Simply awsome prize. A big, no a huge thank you goes out to Sarah. :highfive:

A sweet mug, an excellent box of blanks from firewhatfire, a $30 credit to Classic Nib, several tool posts/rests, a sanding jig and a dedicated dial gauge post from Rick (rherrel), 2 gallons of alumilite and a Smitty's Club membership. I've also bought chingos of pen kits via Smitty's pre-prods and CSUSA group buy. Not BASH related also are a 1221VS, new MT2 tooling, a vacuum pump and paint pot and all needed fittings to make pres/vac pot. I received a little bonus in the form of Amazon gift cards, so I bought some Novus plastic polish, twenty legacy pen kits, an Easy Start carbide chisel from EWT. I'm sure that, like my bank account now, I'm missing something. Anyhow, I better get busy making some pens!

The 1221 vs is my next purchase. I am jealous...... - Aaron

Glad you like them, Vic! I went a bit overboard on blanks when I first got interested in pen turning - I figure I have lots of things to look forward to when my skill level is up to it :biggrin: Glad I got some in there you'd never seen!

I won a box of blanks from Ed (edohmann) from the Daily Trivia contest. Lots of woods that I don't have - really looking forward to turning them! Hopefully have time this week to try a couple. Thanks again, Ed!

You are very welcome, Sarah. I had fun trying to select some interesting blanks and also some that you might not yet have. I'm glad that I at least partially succeeded in that effort. Looking forward to seeing what you make out of some of them.

I won a $25 Woodturningz gift certificate. Have not received it yet, but will probably spend it on some bolt action kits to replenish my stock.

My pleasure, John. Glad to be able to give something back to the community. Let me know if you can figure out those mystery woods - I've got a few more of those pieces in my stash.

Sure are a lot of prizes from edohmann - well done, Ed!

Now where's my kickback for drawing attention to your generousity? :)

It's in the mail :biggrin:

Everyone here is so friendly & welcoming and I have learned an incredible amount from all the postings & library articles in my first year here. My stash isn't as large, and may not have as many burls & spalts as many of you; but I have been richly blessed in so many ways, I figure the least I can do is to share a bit of what I do have. Besides, it's just doggone fun trying to pick out some blanks that I think someone might enjoy having.

Boo Hoo, I'm still sitting on the loser train, except for the wonderful Managers Mug that I got at auction.
Hey Jeff, wink, wink, I wouldn't mind the Cactus Stabilising set from Curtis, in the Drawing. I would be most happy to pay the postage to here.

Bob.

Great BASH!!!

My scores from the BASH, I won a trivia and a wood ID, plus took advantage of the awesome Vendors here:). My last item came in today a gallon of Cactus Juice:). A big thanks to all the people who run the BASH and all the Vendors. Next year I will be entering some of the pen contest as well as photo contest :biggrin: and hopefully will win something on the donation contest, those prizes were awesome but I rode the looser train on that one:frown:.

I received a wonderful package of pen and bottle stopper blanks from edohmann, which I won in the Trivia contest. Thank you Edgar for the great selection of woods and sizes. Several types of wood I haven't had the pleasure of turning yet, so I look forward to those. And that big block of laminated Maple and Paduk will be fun to work with. Thank you again for the great prize package and for supporting the IAP's birthday bash.

Cheers,
James

I won a box of wood and Alumilite blanks from MarkD in the Daily Trivia contest. They arrived quickly and look great. I am preparing for my first sale of the season on March 21 and some of the blanks from Mark will be turned and the pens will be in the inventory.
Thanks to all the members involved in making the Bash a great month long event. Many thanks to all the people/vendors for donating the prizes.

Got a stuffed box of goodies in the mail today from Jason (mywoodshopca). Some great looking woods and several castings along with a couple of modified shell casings. In my opinion, the value of what I was sent far exceeded what was promised. A great way to get off the loser train/bus and learn a bit of Trivia to boot. Great job by all involved in the bash and much appreciation is in order. Thanks again Jason.

If you had my address, I'd actually believe you! :biggrin:

Thank you to all the generous, thoughtful, and accommodating members and vendors for funding the bash - that's what makes the bash successful!

I'd send Ed your address, but the return address on the package you sent me is illegible. :biggrin:

I must be living right.....I am the lucky winner of the John U feather blank collection. I have bought some before from Ed at Exotics but they always get absconded by family and friends when they come over. And every time I try to buy more from Ed they are gone. This time I'm investing in some strong chains. Just trying to figure out how to attach them to the clip.
John and I have already communicated. I think he knows I'll be camped out by the mailbox!
I'll post pics as soon as I have a couple done.
Thank you John for your generosity and to the entire team for making this all possible.
Cheers
Bob

Here's the cherry pen stand I won in the Donation drawing. Thank you Erik Land (cnccutter) and Jeff! Looks great!

I also won a $30 gift certificate from Classic Nib from the Wood ID contest. Hope to use that one soon!

BTW: The pens are for two chiefs on my fire dept. These were made from the original maple flooring from the elementary school they both attended. We did some training burns in the building before it was demolished last year. I plan on giving them to them at our annual dinner in April.

I'm jealous of that bag of loot. Been wanting to get some feather blanks.
