The Box arrived today Sat. Oct 18,2008.
It looks different from when I saw it last.
I removed some Ca Olive, TulipWood, Brazilian Cherry and Eucuaplus.
I added 6 Spalted Holly, 5 Spalted Maple and 18 Cherry Burl.
The reasion that I asked Tim for the number of people in this series is because i wanted to put in one pen blank for each person that is participating in Round #3.
I talked to Tim about this while Round 2 was still running. I had a cherry burl placed in my driveway and Yorkshire Stewart made a comment in You know you are a LumberJock and he referred to my post. ScottB stated that this log will always be known as #391.
So here is the Challenge I’m giving you one blank of Cherry Burl #391 and asking that you make a pen from it. Then post a picture of the blank, the pen and any repairs work you had to do in the blank.
Some of the blankls might be smaller, if the pen you are going to make can use the smaller blank, then take one of them.
Give the project a tag of Challenge391 so that we can all find the results of our pen turning.
Now get to work.
