IAP - PITH 2011 pen I sent. Rules were simple, make it with Pine. 2x4 cut off found at a scrap pile at a Rustic Furniture Maker who tosses these things away.
I placed it under the forced air heater at work for a week and then baked it at 150º for a few hours to harden the pitch loaded knot so I could turn it.
A Woodcraft Cigar pen made into a One-Piece on a Spalted Blue Pine with a nice knot and then four coats of Med CA and polished with brasso.
The other half of the blank and you can see the pitch in this one as I didn't bake it .... yet.
