    My daughter's first pen.

    I consider this a gloat.

    Jennifer is 12 and is always bugging me to do stuff out in the garage. She loves to chop mortises.

    However, yesterday she wanted to turn a pen. so, with some coaxing and pleading with me, I relented.

    Congrats on a great pen, Jennifer, and congrats on a great daughter, Joe. I see a Jet Mini in your future.

    Joe tell her the pen is beautiful. She did a great job on it. Yep a new mustard for you and a Nova for her. Sounds like a deal.

    Way to go Jennifer!

    Joe, you need to get a smock for her, she does NOT look like a "Robert" at all

    Fantastic job Jenifer. Now you got to see where you can put a Jet mini in your shop.

    DeWalt?

    Can't say I blame you for wanting to add some color to your shop. The gray is nice, but yell-o is swell-o.
