no previous part Part 1 of Pen Turners' Swap #2 series Part 2: On the road again... »

Well, a little bit of a delay on my end getting this one started due to some personal matters but we are on the road again now! The box is headed to freedom75 in NC now and he should get it within a few days.

Here’s a map of our travels this time around:

Our total traders grew to 13 this time, from 9 total in Round 1. We had a few from Round 1 step out and quite a few come into the trade.

If anyone has questions let me know, but it’s pretty simple and there are some papers in the box that explain the basics.

I’m not attaching pics of what I’m sending out – I’ll let freedom75 fill everyone in from his end! Surprise value… However you can see 90% of what’s in the box by viewing the last post from Round 1.

Happy trading!

Karson, I did get a bigger box – it was unintentional but I grabbed the one a size up from the last box. Plenty of growing room in this one!

I am unable to be part of pen trade #2 due to working on a really big project that is taking up a lot of my time but look forward to seeing the travels of this round. Hopefully will be finished up on this project by the end of June and back in my own workshop on a full time basis. Until then hope everyone has fun with this.

Ok guys. I recieved the Box . I must say there is some very nice stuff here. I removed a pen made by tim, the craftmanship is very nice on this pen. I cut a 70 year old Carolina Dogwood down last weekend that was dieing. It made some very pretty wood blanks . A deep carmel color with streaks of Pink in it. I made a couple of pen blanks out of that and put them in the box. I have also placed a Large piece of corian in there for turning pens. It should make 2 or 3 blanks for wallstreet style pens. I hope to get the box out this weekend and back on its way to the next person. I will be adding a pen kit or 2 and a couple of pens in there as well . Would just like to say thanks guys for including me in the group and making me feel welcome :-)
