    pens i turned today...

    after i had glued up the blanks for the cutting boards, i figured what better way to thank the coworker who donated the lumber, than with something made from what would have been fire wood. so, i turned a twist ballpoint pen for him, and while i was at it, a fountain pen for myself. (knowing larry, i'll never hear the end of this...)

    You had a more productive day than me. I pulled weeds out of the pond area. Pens look good.

    Yep, those are good ones for sure!
