    Keeping up with the generosity that has been shown to me by others here at WB, here is a box of pen blanks for giveaway to a new pen Turner. If anyone is interested, post on here and I'll have a mystery guest (my wife) pick the winner. All shown in pic have the same thing underneath them. Nothing fancy but good for a newbie to learn with.

    I'm new to pen turning in that I've made one at the makers space and still haven't clearedout enough space in the garage to set up the still in box lathe.

    I have a piece or two of bloodwood flooring cutoffs that I was going to offer up and if I end up I the receiving end of this kind of generosity, I'll have to step to it.

    However it goes, it's a generous offer and good on you for posting it.

    @Neko2 you are the first to respond to this so far. I'll give it to the end of the week and if no one else jumps in then there will be no reason to draw. Good luck!

    I got the box of blanks and was all set to take a picture and write an elaborate post and that ended up being the last real bit of free time I had since ...

    I wanted to make sure and say:thanx2:for the generosity and in a few days I'll pay it forward with a GAW of my own.
