PortablePastimes #1: Bad Back.. Good Show

11-04-2012 03:00 AM by clieb91 | 4 comments »

Well we had our second of 4 shows today. I woke up this morning with a massive backache (and it is still here), I can tell you I feel bad for anyone out there that experiences this on a regular basis. But anyway the truck got loaded and we drove down the street and I started to get things set up. Got everything in place. It was a rather slow start to the day but traffic picked up and we came out well. Big seller today was more of my wife’s crayon rolls and also my pens made a gre...

Workshop #28: Finishing Rack

03-29-2014 12:12 PM by clieb91 | 3 comments »

Been working on a number of bottle openers and decided to try a lacquer finish on them as it should hold up a bit better. Problem was how to apply the finish on a round thing. Here is the simple solution I came up with. Basic piece of scrap wood (actually game that did not work out) 3/8” bolts and nuts. It worked worked well. I have 5 new bottle openers already dried with lacquer and the epoxy is now curing on them. Looking forward to delivering these to the gift shop ...

Made it back into the shop.

07-21-2013 03:04 AM by clieb91 | 3 comments »

First off it was nice to get back into the shop for a a few hours yesterday and today. It has been a very busy 2 weeks. I had to travel to Florida at the last minute to help out with my grandfather who now has dementia and is going to be staying in a nursing home. A very tough week, then cam e home just in time for our trip to New York. American Girl Doll Store is impressive and so is some of the stuff they sell for the dolls. Look for projects to be posted soon for the newest addition to my ...

Turning Pens #1: Pen Turning 101 - started with a kit

12-24-2011 02:08 PM by Sanman | 1 comment »

I was fortunate to have been given a lathe by my brother-in-law after he introduced me to turning pens. I have never used my shed for woodworking and I hadn’t worked on wood since the 70’s. I googled pen kits and found a starter kit reasonably priced and made the plunge. The first two went pretty smooth. The third one split on me and required some repair work. I salvaged some small wood pieces left over from other pens, cut and glued them into place before turning to th...

03-03-2009 03:39 AM by ccpenco | 14 comments »

I’ve thought carefully and done a heck of a lot of research on marketing, and brand building, and all that business related stuff. I’ve raised enough money to get started. I’ve built up an inventory. And now, FINALLY, i’m almost ready to start a business selling turned pens. It’s just going to be a side job. An additional source of money, and a bit of practice in the world of business.i still need to do some things though. #1. I NEED A NAME : iR...

Kids in the Shop! #10: Entrepreneurial Spirit

10-12-2014 03:20 PM by clieb91 | 6 comments »

I mentioned a few moths ago that my daughter got herself an order for 8 pens. She did a great job and the two clients loved them. We kind of dropped the ball on the farm stand thing but hope to pursue that again after the holidays. For the craft fair season this year my wife and I have two different weekends that have two smaller shows happening so we decided to split up. Since we can’t have the pens that I normally make at both locations my daughter has decided to help take up the slac...

Atlanta Pen Show

04-07-2008 03:20 AM by itsme_timd | 1 comment »

This isn’t exactly a woodworking thing but thought some others might be interested in it. Over breakfast yesterday I noticed someone reading the paper and a picture of 4 pens with some catchy title next to the pic – I got nosy and found out The Atlanta Pen Show was this weekend. I like to turn pens and I collect as well so I decided to head over this afternoon. Nice place for some browsing and checking out styles, etc. There were (of course) many of the big name companies ...

Freedom Pens - Welcome Soliders!

04-07-2008 04:08 AM by itsme_timd | 4 comments »

Fellow Jocks, two quick notes here. 1) Please don’t take this as a political statement. I know we come from all over the world and each have our own beliefs. No matter what we feel about the Middle East, I appreciate our men and women that serve our country – I’m very proud of them and this is here to showcase my miniscule ‘Thank You’ to them.2) This blog is written for the men and women that get these pens, I hope you enjoy it as well but thought some of th...
