« Part 8: Yes, ScottB, there IS a Santa Claus! Part 9 of Pen Turners' Swap - Round 3 series Part 10: Wherefore art thou, Pen Trade Box? »

We’re about to find out!

Man, I really got discombobulated on this last trip, The box made it from Scott to Ned without me updating the blog and then I forgot to tag the last entry as part of the series so you can see Ned’s update here.

Now, the box should be on it’s way to CanadianWoodChuck, in Canada, of course! I think the timing on this couldn’t have been better as I know we’ll all be busy around Christmas and the New Year so it’s a great time to send this across the border.

Here’s the map:

Thanks again for everyone’s participation. I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and is able to spend some time away from the commercialization to reflect on the true reason and meaning of Christmas. However, I’m sure that will all be forgotten after enjoying the true meaning of New Year’s Eve. :-)

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!!

Now i’m really excited. This is just like Christmas. I end up in the hospital last Thursday with a case of Vertigo so the only thing thats been spinng is my head. However I have lots of stock so I can keep the box moving, hopefully this spinning will stop before the parcel arrives. Merry Christmas to all.

Sorry for the delay, the box will ship out tomorrow, life caught up with me a bit later in the week last week, but it is ready to go and I’ll be hitting the post office tomorrow.

I missed the propane store by THAT MUCH tonight. It’s a balmy 39 in the shop, a little too cold to work comfortably. With a fresh bottle of propane, and a couple hours or heat pouring in there I think I can manage to get ready for the box in another week or two here.

Got some unusual wood to put in there, so some blanks are going to have to come out. I will also see if I can get one of my modified Europeans made up.

Wow, this is getting close. I guess I better get started turning. Thanks again to everybody for participating. These are great. It really helped me to see some finished pens. Good turnings to all, and to all a good night.

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

What is the pen swap? I just got sety up to turn pens about 2 weeks ago. What a blast that is. Is it to late to sign up?

Hi Shawn, it is too late to get in on this round but you can see what this is all about by reading the post here.

If you keep an eye on this round we’ll note when another one is starting.

Thanks for checking us out!

Hey there Pen Traders!

Hope everyone has enjoyed their holidays… looks like it’s back to a normal life now, whatever that might be.

As expected the pen box is taking a while to get across the border, it did last time as well. We suspect some Canadian customs agents may be off turning pens – or even worse they didn’t realize what they got their hands on and it’s now kindling! The horror!!!

Just wanted to update everyone on where this stands, I’ll keep you posted.

Ned? Ned? Wherefore art thou, Ned?????

Uh-oh… no sign of the box in Canada yet and I hoped maybe Ned had a tracking number we could use – unfortuantely I’ve not been able reach him yet. Hopefully we’ll make it to CanadianWoodChuck soon… he’s eager to chuck some of that wood onto the lathe and make some pens!

I’ll post any news I get here to keep everyone in the loop!

Canadian customs probably cannot figure out how to repack the box yet!

Unfortunately, no.

I haven’t been able to reach Ned, he was sending it just before Christmas. Last time we went to Canada it took almost a full month – so I’m not giving up hope just yet!
