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 slack. We went to the local Woodcraft yesterday and she picked out a few of her favorite kits and a few pieces of wood to supplement what we already have on hand. we even stood in the store and discussed the cost of the items and figured out the total cost for products. I am very proud of since she can struggle a bit with math sometimes.
I was able to prep all the pieces for her yesterday and this morning. So she is planning on tackling 5 Seam Rippers, 3 Multifunction Tools, and 10 pens. I am looking forward to working with her in the shop over the next few weeks. Should be fun sharing the lathe as I too have a few orders to deal with along with craft fair stuff. I will post these once she has some done as well as her teacher gifts which she is very excited about being able to do again.
