I was once again visited by Peter Rideout today.
Peter comes to Japan once or twice a year, and usually makes the time to stop in for a visit while he is in Japan.

This time he brought me some birds-eye Maple from his neighbor's firewood pile (seriously, you are killing me!)

We had a good chat, and I made sure Peter did not leave empty handed, I gave him a pen I made from a very special piece of Olive wood that Toni sent me from Spain in June of 2008.
I know it took a while for me to use that wood Toni, and I have some left still, it sure is beautiful wood and works very nice too, as well as having a pleasant smell.
I sure do enjoy these visits, if any of you are ever in Tokyo, I would love it if you would stop by!
