    Pen Blank Swap is Shipped!

    Blanks have been shipped. Mailing labels are included to make shipping a little easier. Cost is $10.70 for the medium flat rate box. If you don't take out enough value to cover your investment in the shipping cost then i don't know what to say. (in public that is) Here is the list of names;
    1) Richard Leshner
    2) Jonathon Shively
    3) Dan Noren
    4) Chuck Ellis
    5) Frank Fusco
    6) Tom Baugues
    7) Kalea Thoits
    8) Leo Vosine
    9) Bob Gibson
    10) Paul Gallian
    11) Garry Foster
    12) Allen Bury
    13) Mark Kosmowski
    14) Jim Burr
    15) Paul Downes

    The rules are simple. Pick a name off the list and ship the box on. Cross the name off. Of course their mailing label will be used up so it's not likely anyone will receive the box twice in the same cycle.

    Please take a picture of what you take out and put in. If you feel like it post a picture of a pen you turned with a received blank. This isn't mandatory but it might keep you from being harassed by forum members. It's nice to see work that other people do.

    I would like to receive the box last to complete the cycle.

    Anyone can join at any time if they can figure out who has the box. I included a couple of extra mailing labels.

    Lets keep it fun.

    There are 100 blanks in the box although some of them are long and it is possible to get 2 pens out of those. I also will put in an instruction sheet and helpful hints for some of the woods that hard to turn. We have several experienced pen turners on the forum so feel free to ask for help.

    I will post a picture later today

    Happy turning!

    Is that the first swap of the second swap or maybe it's the 3rd sawp.

    Excellent !!
    Would it be easier for everyone just to ship it to the next person on the list instead of choosing one??

    No.
    Actually, I like the idea of picking yer next.
    That way it will make the last person feel like a loser.

    Actually Because I have seen ALL the blanks in the box, I have requested to be last.

    If some joker ships the box right back to me then I will take my toys and go home.

    Technically this is the 1st cycle of the second swap. Unless the first swap second cycle has been shipped. In that case this would be the first cycle of the ...................WHAT! ...............my head hurts.....................oh well.
