2018 LLWW Pen Swap:
This is an annual event sponsored by Lynn Lacy from LL-Woodworks, Lynn has a chanel on YouTube.
This is how it works: Individuals who subscribe to his channel are eligible to enter. Lynn collects the names of those who are interested in participating and will assign them a partner. Each participant makes a segmented pen and sends it to the person that Lynn has assigned to them.
This is a great opportunity for pen turners to meet each other share different ideas and to discuss challenges that may have come up.
This year I was matched up with Mike Barry from the great state of New Hampshire. The Pen that he created was a Slimline with Spectra-ply. His idea came from Bob at RJBWoodturner. It is a very unique design and It is proudly displayed in my home.
The pen that I made for him was a cigar style pen. I used several different types of wood in a segmented design. The woods I had used were, black walnut, maple, and cabbage bark that came from Belize.
If you are interested in contacting Lynn, Bob, or Mike here is their information:
