Thread: Patting myself on the back

    Patting myself on the back

    I have only been turning for about 3 years. In those 3 years I have not been able to spend any real amount of time turning. Things like work, honey dos and life in general keep getting in the way. Where I work we decided to get into a Cancer fund drive and walk. The store did not put up any money but every one did help to raise some.
    My way was to enter one of my pens into an auction. Proud to say it was the biggest money maker in the auction. Turned out to make me a little money when 2 of the bidders just had to have one. I didn't think it was that special but I always find something wrong with my stuff. Going to try a picture, Thanks for looking.

    Toni I got the pen blank at Woodcraft. I can only wish I had that much talent to make that up.

    No wonder that sold for a good price. It's a great-looking pen.

    Great looking pen and no wonder it sold well. Isn't it great to get orders after that.
