    Pen Swap Partners (closed)

    Here is the list of Pen Swap Partners. I made a table with the names of the participants, as shown below.



    Then I printed it, cut them apart, put them in a hat - well, actually a box - and had LOML draw them out one at a time.
    These are the partners for the Pen Swap in the order they were drawn.

    1. Kevin Brown & Doug M Jones

    2. Gord Rock & Stuart Ablett

    3. Dale Johnson & Chuck Ellis

    4. Vaughn McMillan & Pete Jordan

    5. Gari Biasillo & Bobby McCarley

    6. Tyler Wood & Nancy Laird

    7. Frank Fusco sends to Barry Stratton
    Barry Stratton sends to Billy Burt
    Billy Burt sends to Frank Fusco

    I hope everyone enjoys making their pens and receiving the pens from their partner.

    Thanks everyone,
    .....Gord

    P.S. Doesn't it just figure I'd be the one who has to send a pen to Japan!!

    Excellent, Gord! This promises to be fun.

    BTW, sorry in advance to Pete for getting stuck with me.

    Thanks Gord!

    Vaughn, Don't you have to have a "working" lathe to participate?

    Ouch! I guess I could find the MT1 mandrel and turn one on my Wilton mini.

    Nah, I'll bet I can have the PM powered up in time to mess up a few pens between now and Valentine's day.

    I think you will be turning redwood trunks by then!

    I look forward to the exchange and if the pen I make for you doesn't turn out well, you can always regift it.

    Maybe by Valentines day I can get some consistency in my CA/BLO finish. Some turn out great and some not so hot. Gotta get through the Christmas presents I need to make this week and then may take a couple of days away from the lathe. This old fat man is not used to standing on concrete as long as I have been recently.

    Should be fun,

    Doug

    Don't worry, Frank, it'll be special. I'm thinking sumthin in The University of Texas colors, you know, like Pernambuco & Holly.

    And I just realized that I'm getting one from a fellow Mustard owner. SWEET!
