It has been a while, a looooooooooong while, since posting here on my pen blog….
Mostly due to my proclivity towards procrastination and lack of production.
My original goal, of several pens a week, was….. well, lofty at best….
& more along the lines of an out right lie to myself!!!
It is OK though, I have forgiven myself and have granted myself a pardon.
As I looked back, I realized I neglected to post two Pen & Pencil sets….
One set was for my nephew, that graduated law school.
The other for his sister (yeah, my niece), who graduated from college.
These be them….
My buddies over on the “Stumpy Thread” may remember these….
I can’t remember what wood was used for the main bodies.
The accent stripes are purpleheart & yellowheart. (Thanks Jeff: JL7)
The important thing is, I made them & they were well received!!!
That is all ancient history though….
My original intent, of this blog post, is to show today’s pen turnings.
My good friend, “The Chef”, had out of town guests….
His father & girlfriend were visiting, so I decided to present them with a gift.
I also decided to experiment with the “Captain Eddie Casstelin: 12 Cent Pen Kit”!!!
I have been wanting to try my had at this for a while.
There is no such thing as scraps…. just remnants OR firewood!!! (Right, Candy???)
Soooo, nothing fancy or exotic here, just remnants.
For the record…. one is made from Oak, the other from Jatoba & Maple.
I turned less than planned…. and I have less scraps, err remnants & more gifts given!!!
Yup, nothin’ special….
That’s why these ain’t in a “Project Post”!!!
I’m sitting down now, kicking my feet up & having a cold one.
I may not have earned it…. But football is on!!!
