Blocks are in Victorian Blackwood & Blackheart Sassafrass. The pen that Gab included was turned from Banksia Wood with a flawless CA finish. Gab even included a 3 page typed letted letting me know where the timbers came from along with a little information.

    I am so pleased with the swap this year. Thank you so much for putting this together as it is always so much fun. One swap down and one to go.

    Thanks again Gabriel,

    Robert

    Default Its Here

    Package arrived my partner David. Thank you very much. Your work is superb.

    Not only did it contain a beautiful Penlight but the package filler is awesome.
    I plan on adding this to my fountain pen repair toolbox. I am very happy that I was included in this great event and if I didn't say it before HAPPY AUSTRALIA DAY

    I'm not sure of the wood on the penlight David. Is it RedGum?
    Its beautiful and the Black Titanium and Gold sets it off great.

    I have not forgotten your pen. I actually finished it yesterday evening, but it needs one more piece. I should have it in the mail by next week.
    Here's a sneak peak

    Now, back to the shop.

    I don't want to distract from the Sierra, just that the JR Gent looks quite stunning.

    Default OMG ! What a lovely surprise !

    G'Day Folks,

    Here is what Peter, USNR'03 sent me in the Pen swap.

    I am unsure of the pens kit name as its the first I have seen over here, it has lovely solid feel to it and is now a regular in my pocket !

    newpens2candc 003.jpg

    The selection of blanks are great, I've always wanted to try a coffee bean blank and now have the opportunity ! The spalted timbers are getting put aside for something special, I don't know what yet but they are so well figured I am drooling over them, LOL. Not only did I get some lovely blanks, I also received a beautiful fridge magnet and key ring. The fridge magnet is keeping the most important item in place on the fridge - the menu from the local Indian Restaurant !!!

    Regards and thanks to you, Peter !!!

    Cam Glad you enjoyed. The pen is an executive from pen state industries, my carry pen all of the time, the timber is red eucalyptus.The magnet is Aussie Cyprus (flooring). I have no idea what the unlabeled spalted blank is. I received it as a gift a few years ago. The others should be labeled if not let me know and I'll see what I can do.

    Thank-you for swapping with me!!

    Another Shout out to the organizers THANK-YOU!!

    Regards
    Peter

    and from another angle



    Somehow I dont think mine will quite be as good or on par.

    I looked at first glance and pondered this plethora of segments and all the inlay. Then it dawned on me what it was ... very effective

    Thanks Corbs ... love it, CA finish I presume

    Was cleaning up after a great day of turning stuff in the shop with some friends, and the "One-that-must-be-obeyed" walked into the shop carrying a parcel! Well, things don't get much better!!



    Cut the parcel open, and all this pretty timber jumped on me(sure do love me some pretty timber)....





    But the show stopper was this great writing instrument from my swap partner Troy!!














    I look forward to doing this swap every year, and wish to thank Troy for a great addition to my growing collection of pens. Thank you!!!

    I am still shipping Internationally for now.

    no worries scott glad you like it , it was a spur of moment to decide to do the pen in both x-cut and with the grain to give a different look , and i hope you love the timbers i sent all bloody hard but special , you even got a blank of buloke as you can see its marked as being the hardest timber in the world as rated using the janka process , thanks again for joining in and also being my swap partner again

    Nicole, Love the pens!! The wife "relocated" (acquired) the slimline. Love the selection of blanks to go along with the pens.

    Please excuse the pictures they were taken with my phone.

    Nicole I do not believe you are a beginner.

    Thank you!!

    Regards
    Peter

    Default My goodies from NZ

    Received my parcel from Michael in NZ and what a treat. The pen is a Sierra dressed in swamp kauri, said to be 4000 years old. The CA finish is immaculate.
    There is also a small forest of blanks.
    My photography does not do justice.
    Many thanks Michael and to the organizers, it's always a treat at to take part in this.

    One of my partners this year was Brad (Spankingpigeon), and his parcel arrived today. Needless to say, I'm absolutely flawed at his generosity. Not only did he send an amazing segmented pen (on a kit that I'm instantly in love with - magnetic catch, shadow chrome kit - awesome!!), but he has also sent countless amazing pen blanks and a huge 250 x 170 x 360 piece of olive wood.

    All I can say is THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU what a champion!
