    Pen Project completed!!!!! News stories attached!

    Well, Project "Give Back" for my NJ-SP Ag. Woods students is completed. The pens completed are all unique and quite beautiful. My students are very proud of their work as they should be. The local paper did a story and they don't have a website () so my computer teacher scanned it () and I have tried to attach it but it was to large so she is working on it and when it gets resized, will post that also.
    Then the larger regional paper picked up the story and so here is that website (they have the better picture of all pens together).

    Yep, pretty proud of my group of guys and gals. Friday evening we meet at the American Legion to show the pens to them, then they get boxed and mailed to RevDoug for final shipping. Thanks for looking.

    A very worthy project Jonathan Looks like your students did a ton of work and learned something in the process not just woodworking. A fellow on another location I frequent made a hundred pens and gave them to a group of servicemen and women leaving for Iraq.
    Nice Job

    Well done Jonathan. Your students did well and learned something along the way.

    Jon, I'm so proud of you and your students for what you've done, and I'm glad to have been a very small part of this project with the blanks I sent to you.

    Thank you everyone on behalf of my students. Nancy and all that contributed anything, even well wishes, were all appreciated and counted towards the positive completion of this project. No small parts, all a BIG THANKS.
