So Thursday night my DW reminded me that my daughter’s last CCD class before Christmas was Saturday morning. The problem was I was not home Thursday, had to work on Friday evening. So Friday night when I got home I got a blank drilled out and glued up. First thing Saturday morning we got up and started in on a pen.
Sophia did a portion of the roughing on this one but since we were a bit behind the eight ball I helped her get it to final shape. Also there was the issue that I had no idea how this wood would perform. The blank decided upon was from a recent purchase of Olive Wood. First time I have ever used it.
Sophia then did all the sanding and polishing,
and of course the assembly.
The pen came out great, she chose a fun clip for it. We packaged it up with the certificate that came with the blank and a postcard with pictures of her making it and had time to spare.
We will be back in the shop today with a number of projects and looking forward to it.
