Cap'n Eddie has started his first ever Pen art challenge. Now until the end of the month he's asking all artists to submit a picture of their best pen and a winner will be chosen.
Go watch the video
He explains all the rules. Good luck to all and happy turning.

I hadnt seen the second one before now. I still cant believe this guy is still running off at the mouth when he is still yet to post a single piece of his work. IMO, this guy isnt even a woodworker. Just a lousy troll. Probably lives in his parents basement and has never even seen a lathe. How has he not been banned?

I had a college roommate with wretched manners. He rubbed everyone wrong for the first semester then began to catch on. He ended up being a great guy and my roommate for 4 yrs.

I love how inclusive this forum is. While members should quickly be called out for using bad etiquette, I kinda wish we could hold back on the return fire a bit. Everyone has reasons for the way they act or communicate, and while that's no excuse for rudeness, we all have our own crap to deal with. Just my 2 cents.

Now when somebody starts mouthing off about hollow forms I may come out swinging:).

I agree with you too a point. Were talking about a guy that has been a member longer than me and only has 200 posts. Hes never posted anything that I can recall that benefits the site or members. He just occasionally gets on and runs his mouth, usually about pen turners. He also loves to tell everyone how good he is at everything he does yet he refuses to post a single piece of his work. I dunno that I should be called out for implying that he might be a troll when thats all hes ever done here.

I like the way you phrased this, and agree ... hopefully better times are coming, I see on another thread there's a promise of a finishing tutorial. With or without pix, that'll be a positive contribution.

Lol yes good call everyone, " tail tucked between my legs" i have put up work do research on the BLOG. Lol unreal how personal you all get. Tight knit group huh? I have and others I've shown in the woodworking world have cracked up over this blog. What?you going to argue with me over a blog? I enjoy seeing awesome bowl work from other people on this blogs. It's cool. What bothers me, and from what ALL you have said its a blog and we all have our own opinions right? Know one does the research. Go ahead giver a comment back arguing that, yes some people do but majority do not. All it takes is google and YouTube. Sorry but if a lot of you want to act like MEN stop bring pansies lol Jesus. Worse comes to worse your clan will ban me lol. Please do. Feel like I'm in middle school again. Almost feel bad..

Lol yes good call everyone, " tail tucked between my legs" i have put up work do research on the BLOG. .
Ok fellas, i decided to step up and do a bit more research and this is some of what I found


First hollow vessel http://www.woodworkingtalk.com/f6/first-hollow-vessel-38869/

spalted tararind http://www.woodworkingtalk.com/f6/spalted-tamarind-39029/

asking for 'fly rod' help http://www.woodworkingtalk.com/f9/fly-rods-42560/

walnut burl bowl http://www.woodworkingtalk.com/f6/claro-walnut-burl-bowl-37521/

pictures of milling (was rather impressive http://www.woodworkingtalk.com/f26/wooo-30893/

Ok guys this one explains it in my books http://www.woodworkingtalk.com/f26/cherry-anyone-23949/ see if you can pick it up. This one has some more pics of wood he has cut but the pics did not actually show my end, internet connection thing I think

You have some interesting threads there MR Ibangwood, I think what people take issue with is your lack of tact. We all have opinions, even your best and closest mates no doubt disagree with you at times whether they say so or not. The issue is how you say things. Some of your wording has been rather 'offensive' to some but maybe what it is is simply 'youth'. I was brought up in an environment where you respect your elders and your peers. That is lacking in the world today. On the forum I believe the idea is to have a mutual respect for each other. Dont get me wrong, you are not the only person others have had issue with and other issues have been much more significant that yours. Where some appear to have a complete disregard for others I believe you may simply speak your mind without giving due consideration to your words and how they might be interpreted.

Im glad you have come forward and said something here and hope you give thought to what others have said and perhaps this can be a new start for everyone

regards

Dave

Well said. +1. I bang.....I have no beef with you in fact, there's a lot of truth in some of the things you say. But going for the jugular while saying it is inviting the reaction you got here. Yeah I agree some are a little sensitive. And I myself have misinterpreted replies to things I've said. It's the nature of written conversations. I believe if something can be taken two different ways you have to assume the person on this forum means the comment in the best way and not as an affront. Someone could be the best in the world at what they do but if they are a jerk about it nobody wants them around. Like Terrell Owens. Lol. I'm not trying to lecture you. I'm am simply offering you another way to look at it. I hope you stay on the forum because I am sure there are things people can learn from you. But I also hope you will see that the in-your-face approach is unnecessary. Let's get back to woodwork shall we?
