    Me in lathe land!!!

    Yep I am going to show some flat work in lathe land Well as least my part is flat but the show stopper is round stuff A while back I showed my first cutting boards that i gave as a wedding shower gift to some dear friends daughter. And to add to it I wanted to gift the couple with pens to sign their wedding license on Saturday. Now I DO NOT TURN so I got in touch with a few of my friends here at FWW and contracted 4 pens, 2 for the bride and groom and 2 for the brides parents (Our dear friends, the LOML has been friends with the brides mother for 50 years ) OK now the show stoppers, Jonathan Shively turned me 4 of the nicest pens I have seen and Pete Simmons did a 2 row engraving and complimented them to the finest possible way Thank you both as I now have something so very special to give some very special people OH and a simple presentation box that I made also made of curlie maple and jarrah to match the cutting boards. And as required,THE PICS

    Wonderful effort all around!

    I really like the way the hardware on those pens compliment the wood, very well done on that point too!

    The box is really nice, love the curly Maple
