    Pens for Canadian Peacekeepers

    For the past years since I have been turning pens I have been involved with an endeavour created by a special friend of mine.

    The top pic is a group of 11 Jr. Gent Rollerball Pens in a variety of woods.

    The 2nd pic contains 32 Flat Top Ballpoint Pens in a variety of woods as well.

    Each pen pack contains a replacement ink cartridge along with a letter of appreciation to the Peacekeeper thanking them for their contribution to our country.

    This group of pens, 43 in total were turned by yours truly over the past couple of months. They were presented to the co-ordinator of the project along with another 27 turned by the Durham Woodworking Club in Oshawa ON in a small ceremony on Feb. 4, 2012.

    They are on their way now to our Canadian Peacekeepers for distribution as the Commander of a unit sees fit!

    It feels great to sell a pen,
    It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

    If your presence doesn't make an impact;
    Your absence won't make a difference!
