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

Dave -

I know you're a volunteer fire-fighter. Not sure if the news made it to Oz, but last weekend a wildfire took the lives of 19 brave guys in Arizona, it made me think of you.

You have my respect -- be careful.
Thanks Duncsuss.

I expect some of what happened there will become the subject of some of our future training.

Rather tragic any loss of human life and for so many from a close knit unit - sad

Yes and that was one of the pens from that project. This guy said nothing about older pens being used so I entered that one. There were very few rules.

I hope to be able to get back into my shop soon to do a few other pens I have been working on. Not sure many people will know what goes into making a pen such as that one so it will not get many votes but what the heck, I entered.
I was quite impressed with that thread and your pen. I thought more might have entered, I guess I should have entered one of mine.

I would be very surprised if yours does not make the top 10. I should post a few of mine one of these days and see which makes the most popular

Oh yeah liked that one too, there was one or two more with aluminium that I liked, probably a total of about 5 I would have liked to have been able to vote on

I think the whole thing was a cool idea. There is always going to speculation and second guesses over any competition based on skill etc.

Where do you draw the line on bought blanks ...... I think laser cut kits should not be in it. Maybe it could have been 3 categories, natural blank, cast blank, segmented blank and vote for top 3 in each category.

Hopefully if he does it again I get one of mine in there.
