Hey guy exiting news for me. I was told by the boss to make two sets of pens and boxes for a business trip to china. They will be given as gifts. I was given until the 15th. They wanted two of the boxes
and pen set i just turned for another job in Oklahoma (no pic yet) but it is penn state long wood satin set with red Mallee buro and ebony. they are going to give me time of work to do this task as it is very high priority.

-- I get out in the shop when I can

Do you get to go and deliver them? And give a presentation on the quality of American craftsmanship?
Don’t take “no” for an answer! Congrats.
