    I needed some gifts for the church staff. Phil graciously offered his shop and his help. Yesterday we cranked out a few pens. There was cherry, walnut, Doug fir, pink ivory, paduak, bloodwood, and a couple dunno's. Haven't had a turning tool in hand for a while, but all went well. The best part was spending time with a friend at something we both enjoy.

    And then we had chicken stir fry and butternut squash. Yum! He is also an excellent cook.

    I love my talented friends!

    And a good time was had by all. Sounds like a great time and you ended up with a nice bevy of pens/gifts. Sweet deal.

    I see my favourite pen in that bunch. RHS, Flat Top American: that's the model I turn for my Pens for Canadian Peacekeepers project. Got 7 done, 10 more to go!

    The soldiers would love any of that bunch, Carol. A nice looking display of pens, and best of all you had fun turning them!

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

    Your absence won't make a difference!

    Thanks, Mack. Certainly not in your league, except for the having fun part. And it was good to have a wood tool in hand again. Its been a while.
