    Jonathan inspired pen blank holder

    After visiting with Jonathan at his home over the weekend at the family gathering I decided to tackle an ongoing issue I have had. Storing my pen blanks in a way that I can find them. My current storage system consists of cardboard boxes. So Sunday morning I got up and built this storage box that will separate pen blanks by species and/or color. It will mount on my wall for easy access.

    Tom, I was so happy to see that you made it to the Gathering. I am excited something in my shop was organized to the extent someone was inspired!!!!!!!! (those of you that didn't attend can't imagine the disorder in my shop (I am no Larry for sure!!)) It looks good so far Tom. Hope to see pictures of it hanging and filled!!!

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!
