    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.

    Wow, I sure wish my rainy days were that productive. A beautiful set of pens. For some reason the lemonwood really caught my eye.
    I hope it rains some more for you soon!

    Guess you'll be the only guy on the block praying for a monsoon.

    Great looking pens. You were in production mode.

    It rained again today, so I went back to the shop, but first rattle out of the box, broke the belt on my lathe... so no joy in TN today.

    It must be protesting from the previous day's workout. Sorry to hear your lathe's laid up, but I do like the pens you did get done.
