    Best Gift of All

    Well i debated with myself where to place this one. Did not want the flatwork guys to miss it so skipped the turning section just in case.

    Been busy catching up with things since the computer recovery.

    One item i have been delinquent on mentioning is a small parcel that arrived the week my computer was down.

    Opened it up and I could not believe my eyes.

    Here is what it contained.

    Thank you Mack Cameron. Personalized and all Osage Orange Pen.

    This ones a real keeper and very special to me thanks Mack.

    Now some of you might recall me turning a little ring bowl out of Osage Orange that I had found at the dump. I did not know about the wood at the time and asked for help here to identify it.

    Well I sent a small piece of this find to Mack for him to make a pen with. I certainly was not expecting him to make me a pen with it.

    Next thing you know in the post this pen arrives. Mack managed to 2 Pens out of the small piece ...dont know how he managed that but boy i am delighted.

    As the mastercard advert says ........"PRICELESS"

    Just had to share this with Ya all.
    cheers

    Hi Rob; It's real easy, you cut the blank in two.

    I think your photography skills could be improved somewhat. Here's a better look see at Rob's pen.



    And here's the other one that goes to the Farmers Markets for sale.


    Hey Larry; when this one sells, I'll be ahead of the game And pay particular attention to my signature line. That's where all the fun comes from!

    It feels great to sell a pen,
    It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

    Your absence won't make a difference!
