and unfortunately not a lot to show for it as I was away for a good portion of it. Spent most of the weekend at my parents, so I did not get much shop time this week. I did however manage to come up with a new display technique for my pens. I happen to stumble over gbrown4’s version of a pen tilt and decided I needed to try one as well.

This is the one I came up with for starters. It is some ¾” red oak cut at 4” long. I need to do a little more experimenting but a pretty happy with this and will plan to make some additional ones to go with some pens. It has also given me a good idea for an actual pen display that I will need to make soon. Curious has anyone had luck in making tilts with wood less then ¾” ?

My games are still coming together and I think I just might post them as one large project in a few weeks when I have them all together.

That’s about it for tonight. Hope you all have a good week in and out of the shop.
