    Thanks, Mack!

    Last month, I took a bunch of rotten maple ( ) scraps up to Larry's, and shared them with a few of the pen makers. Imagine my surprise when I got a package from Canada today! In that package, was a really beautiful, engraved, pen from Mack Cameron.

    Man, if that's rotten wood, I'd love to see what Mack can do with the good stuff.

    That "rotten" maple of yours sure has some great spalting going on, and of course Mack turned out another beauty of a pen.
