Thank you all for the votes!
@jttheclockman I was expecting a couple of entries to use this kit, looks like I'm the only one that tried this year. I'll watch my back for the upcoming BASHs though... 😅

Looks like I won’t have to jostle for a seat on the Loser’s Train this year. Thanks to all who voted for my pen and thanks to the donors for the prizes.

I had high hopes when I first made this pen, but when I saw all the other fantastic entries, I was happy just to make the final round. Placing out of those top 10 entries is a special honor.

Congratulations Keith & Fred. Well done!

Thanks for running this contest, Mike.

Get some while you can Keith. I exchanged emails with Timberbits last year, when the stock is gone they won't stock the kit again :)

I have some and was suppose to try one after I saw your winner from last year that looked the same. They do make a nice kit and you can add your own touch here and there.

Congratulations to all who entered, there was some great looking timber on display.
Fred, that piece of HRB is amazing, extra congrats to you for making it even more amazinger, that’s an awesome looking pen.
Thank you Brad! I got a couple of call blank-size of HRB from a seller at a Facebook group, this is old stock he assembled 25 years ago or so. Not sure what he paid for it back then but it was probably a good investment given today's prices.
