Okay….......1st, nothing of these is made of wood…. And, the Easy button is for my Dentist because he is darn good in his field. BUT, the whole staff wanted acrylic writing instuments. So, as a surprise for them, and, because I feel they’re some of the greatest folks I know, I made these up for them all as my thanks to them for being who they are, and doing what they do, because they’re all so dog-gone good at it. When I first met my dentist back in ‘98, and after the first visit, I said: “You and I are going to grow old together Doc”. I meant every word of it too. He’s a super nice guy, and a fantastic dentist. His staff that works for him are all super as well. It’s my way of letting them know, I am thankful for them. The bullet pen, of course is for the Dentist, (“The Tooth Whisperer”), and the other bling pens are for the staff, and one for his wife. Being big Louisville Cardinal fans, the red and black acrylic pens are for them. The others picked out the colors they wanted, but nobody has seen them yet. I’ll be going to deliver them on the 11th of this month, so, I’m gettin excited to give them. I’ll be gettin some new choppers in the front uppers. For all you motorcicle folks, I’m not talkin bout bikes… :). I’ll post a pic in here after I get em. As always, thnx for the looks, comments, (good/bad/ugly), and for checkin in. I always appreciate it, you, & them. Hummm, almost sounds like a Pink Floyd song. (“Us and Them”) lol

Good job and great idea Roger. I made a candy bowl and a turned a box for my dentist and his assistant. Take care of those who take care of us.

Well done. I bet that you will still be able to eat corn on the cob (with the new choppers). Good luck, they should be quite pleased with them. Wonder what Black and Red Acrylic choppers would look like.

Nice pens Roger, I don’t like my dentist nearly that well nor do I have the talent to make pens.

Roger, these are nice work. I am sure they will be appreciated. I guess in their line, plastic and acrylics are used more than wood. Wooden teeth sort of went out of style about George Washington’s time.

I have been scattering boxes and spoons among some of the medical people I work with. I do like many of them, and they have done a fine job of keeping me going. Then too, I want to be something besides another piece of meat when I walk in or am under the knife. It seems to be working. Aren’t we lucky to live in a time when they are making new parts for old farts?

Good luck on your new incisors. Shine up your smile for me. Keep turning and keep posting.
