    December 2016 competition - RESULTS

    Before I announce the results I would like to say a massive thank you to everyone, both those who entered and those who voted, for showing support and for joining in the spirit of the thing. A good number of entries from makers at all levels of experience encouraged votes in greater numbers than any of the competitions throughout last year. Every single entry received votes, and I'm sure you will agree with me when I say they all can be regarded as winners.

    However, some entries received more votes than others, and I am delighted to announce that the person who made the pen with the most votes is.................



    fingwe - Huge congratulations Melanie. Your pen has led the voting from the word go and you win first prize with an extremely worthy entry.

    In second place by a small margin is Buckeye. Congratulations Peter - I'm not sure we've seen kitless work from you on the forum before.

    After a last minute flurry of voting last night, in closely fought third place is Dalboy. Congratulations Derek - justification for your last minute decision to enter.

    The pens in runners up positions were made by (in alphabetical order), Bassethound, Bill Mooney, Chisel_Wizz, Gizmo3k, Gsteer, Penpal, Sgreen, Terry Q, Vic Perrin, Woodhacker and Yorkshireman. I'm sure we can all have fun trying to put a pen to their name, but I will leave it to the runners up themselves to identify their work if they wish to. Congratulations - every single pen received votes and there is a runners up prize for you all.


    The prizes for this competition have been funded by Beaufort Ink, Neil Lawton Pen Blanks, and by the Forum itself.

    An extremely successful competition to round off the series - thank you to everyone who contributed to it in any way, and to all those who contributed to the competitions throughout last year. Money-off vouchers to spend at Beaufort Ink will be awarded to all entrants in the 2016 competitions including this one - the more competitions you entered, the greater the value your voucher will be. I will be in touch with everybody over the coming days, to sort out prizes and to pass on a few hundred pounds worth of vouchers codes.

    Lastly, if you have any good ideas for competition themes for the future, please get in touch - I'm all ears.

    Congratulations to Melanie and Derek as well as everyone who entered

    I am pleased to get a place, but feel a bit of a fraud as I wasn't able to finish my pen the way it was intended, I managed to get it uploaded with 10 minutes to go after working on it all day, I even went back into the garage at 9.30 pm after dinner and a snooze, to try and get it finished. I am sure I will come across the pieces I dropped on the floor and had to make over again. I am hoping to finish it off properly when I get the energy.

    A very worthy first place. The finish on that pen looks superb.

    Wow, THANK YOU everyone, I can't believe it!!! Being so new, I nearly didn't enter, as I didn't think I'd stand a chance. It was only because Phil specifically invited newcomers in the competition thread that I thought I'd have a go. There were some lovely pens entered, so I'm thrilled that you thought mine worthy!

    Gosh, I still can't believe it

    Well done to all that entered. And congratulations to Melanie for a well deserved 1st place.

    I am also surprised as I only put this in as a last minute entry
