Well had to get started on some pens today. I am in the process of doing 26 of them for my employee's and their wives to give to them when I retire for all the hard work and sticking by me thru thick and thin. There is no greater bunch than what I have and is going to be one of the things I will miss most. The job I am done with but the people well you know.
These are Wallstreet II Click pens from Woodcraft and are acrylic blanks from Woodcraft. They are easy to do with only needing one blank. These were done with a skew after I nipped the corners off with a roughing gouge. There was no sanding. I just buffed and assembled them. The first one is a dark purple, cobalt blue, chocolate covered cherry and pink. Believe it or not the hot pink one as the LOML calls it sells the best of any pen I make. I have sold aobut 30 pens in the last 3 or 4 months and 22 were the hot pink. I just ordered 20 more blanks.
Retirement: That’s when you return from work one day
and say, “Hi, Honey, I’m home – forever.”
To succeed in life, you need three things: a wishbone, a backbone and a funnybone.
