A Harvest Day

Roman Harvest that is. All the ones I have made sold so these will go in my collection.

Very nice, good to see you turn some wood after all those acrylics ;-)

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

Dick very nice job with these pens. Dave at Timberbits is a great guy to do business with. It is so much better of a kit than the original Cambridge and being able to get rid of that black ring that the Cambridge has makes for a classier pen in my opinion. Dave has also given us the option to get the blingless kits and dress them up the way we fell fit whch could mean adding a piece of wood on the clip or a wooden centerband.

Someone asked the question of is there a market??? Absolutely a market for everything but the key is to find the right people. These are higher end pens so you need people who enjoy a good quality pen to write with and or is a collector. They are out there.

I really like that style of pen and your workmanship, GREAT JOB!
That is a good site for pens. I noticed the prices are AUD. Are the prices the same for USA purchases?

I did notice one other advantage their S & P mills are almost 50% less than ant I have seen. That is a big savings!

Very nice, I think I'm a little partial to the blackwood.
