I told the story about where the 391 pen blanks came from in this blog

So for a pay forward – that doesn’t sound right. So for a pay back – That sounds even worse.

Anyways for the two people who were instrumental in me getting the Cherry burl – The farmer and the wood worker who offered it to me – I made them each a 391 Pen.

The first two picture is left and right of pen 1, the next two are left and right of pen 2.

The last picture is the 3 – 391 pens that I’ve made.

The 391Challenge entry is here.

Feel like adorning my shirt with one of them. They are so good.
