    Both of these are reasonable and fair to have as rules. I will have a look at the original rules they may have been in at the start and I have forgotten.

    I looked back one competition no mention of a lathe in March, then at least part on a lathe makes sense to me, the segment one a list of materials and kit used. Like I said small but there ones I support every time.

    I was wrong on the white paper no texture or creases they were always there I had forgotten the creases part Mark.

    The no textures or creases is there to stop identifying who made the pen as some people use textured backgrounds and can be easy to spot who did what. It's just to try and ensure a level playing field as far as possible, same with props.

    If you are about to make a pen/pencil for the competition and are not sure about which material to use, Phil has discounted Ebonite blanks until Sunday, so if that is a material you would like to use get on and order it and you should have it by the weekend to get on with your pen.

    Have a look in the Seller Forums under Beaufort Inks and you will see the discount code.

    Another weekend dawns and for the artistic amongst you it represents time to put together your vision for the July competition. I have received two entries into the competition and either of them would be worthy of first place, so if you haven't started getting yours together then start soon.

    This is the first time that I seem not to have the time to do anything. I have not even done much work in the workshop except roughing out, I still have some more logs to convert and possibly rough turn as well as finish casting. Even these I have had to stop doing today to sort out the wood pile so I can fit it all in.
    On top of that I am writing another article for the woodworker magazine. Who said not working was an easy life

    Derek it just gets busier mate. Your weather should make it ever so much more pleasant than here right now. Good luck with the magazine article.

    We now have 3 pens in the competition and if I had to choose a winner I think any of them could pull it off. So if you want to be in with a chance of a fantastic prize then get your pen/pencil made.

    There are now 4 entries in the competition and I think we will have another one later today, I have given up trying to pick the winner as the four I have seen could all be the winner.

    Lots of ideas, less pen kits and even less time! We will see!
