Been a bit depressed lately, lost job, dog died, wife’s car won’t pass inspection, and so on. But for a few hours everything was forgotten, when my wife and I spend a few hours turning pens together!
Most of the pens are made out of various colors of Colorwood from Rutland Wood. It is like plywood but all the ply’s run the same direction and turn like solid wood. And they make a great looking pen.
Worked with wife on turning training again, and how to speed up her turning. She usually gets a pen or so an hour, but today she smoked out 9 pens, and all were very nice, no failures! We give most of our pens away but were almost out, after a large surprise sale, which cleaned us out.
We had the MP3 player on and listen to music, talked, and had just a great time together, it was very nice time. This is her 10 or so time making pens, but it was her best one so far.
We shared our feeling with each other, and about our faith in God, and how he has taken care of us all these years. Thanks for sharing, and if you need some “me” time to put the troubles of the world away, make a few pens, and pray. It works!
