« Part 12: Round 2 is COMPLETE! Part 13 of Pen Turners' Swap #2 series no next part

Decisions, decisions!

Lots of great stuff to choose from in Round 2. I have to admit, I made out pretty good on this! ;-)

For blanks I took some spalted oak ~ apple ~ pear ~ bamboo ~ sassafrass ~ English yew ~ spalted holly ~ red cedar ~ camphor ~ quilted maple ~ maple and cherry together ~ composite deck material

From what I saw these great blanks came from ryno101, Karson, scottb and rb765. I’m looking forward to trying them all but have to admit I’m very curious how the decking turns out – looks like it has the potential to make a really neat pen!

I got some pens as well – A neat chrome pen with a 2-color wood made by Ryno101 I also took out a euro in what I think is rosewood and a Sierra in blue acrylic made by Rikkor…

I’ll add my goodies and get the box moving along, if you’d like to keep following and see what I added join us over at Pen Trade 3!

Thanks again everyone!

I’m looking forward to seeing some pens made from the materials in swaps 1 and 2. I admit I haven’t done a good job on that yet – I’m kind of “saving” the blanks I got in swap 1. But I intend to create some pens with those blanks and then share them – I hope others are planning the same.

Tim – looks like you ended up with a real haul of great blanks!
