Here we go again!

The map:

Out of the hands for Shannon it’s just a short hop to Kenn in PA with the pen box this time. I can’t wait to see what Kenn does with our treasure chest.

If he hurries he can still get some Christmas gifts out of it!!!

That was a quick hop. I still think I am after Christmas, but who knows…? Thanks Tim for organizing this event.

It’s getting closer to me and I haven’t even had a chance to clean out the garage so I can make projects from the last exchange. Looks like I better get to turning.

-- Sure Dear, I can make that for you. Lemme just run out and get a tool I need for that.

I turned it around in one day so all of you that are anxiously awaiting the arrival of that box – it’s on the way to Scottb. That thing is jambed full of pen blanks but I managed to get a few interesting ones in there and kept a few. It was a little short on completed pens so I put in 5 to replace the one that I took. There are quite a few kits too but I left all of those for others. Anyway, I mailed it today, Sat. Dec 6, so you can guess when you’ll get it from there.

I haven’t tried the antler from this but just made my first antler pen last week from a rack that my cousing gave me. Made a really cool pen!

However, it smells… very… VERY… bad! Especially when drilling. ;-)

Great projects Derrel, thanks for sharing those. I really like the bloodwood and acrylic set – the contrast works very well.

On the Antler… I suggest a respirator NOT a mask… It stinks!!! It may not kill you but it sure smells like it would… The dust on sanding is also very fine… Use you dust to make a “slurry” with CA glue to fill the pores and it makes BEAUTIFUL pens… Slick and shiny… Even the pith of the antler looks good…

The Green acrylic and bloodwood did make beautiful pens… Both from the swap… I have some more pens to make for Christmas today… (12 as a Christmas sale…) the oak tobacco stick and deer antler banding… Both items in the swap…
