WOW! It was a busy week in the shop last week. Was on vacation from the day job and set a goal for the week:
20 pens made and listed on my stores by Sunday, 10/31.

Well, I exceed the goal by creating 24 items and listing 23 (one already sold before listing). The photo shows the fruits of a weeks effort to up the inventory for the Cristmas shopping season.
They include:
Pens 087-101 and
pen/pencil sets 024-031.

See them listed at:

That’s an impressive collection – hopefully you will have an inventory depletion problem!

Thanks! I sure hope for that inventory depletion problem, over the next couple months in particular!
I actually made all of those in in 6 days (Sat – Thurs.), Took photos on Friday and then did all the listings on Sat. & Sun. So it took me 9 days to make them, shoot them and list them. Not to mention a Sunday night web order for additional kits that didn’t arrive until Thursday.

It was non-stop scrambling for me, but I had a lot of fun doing them. PLUS – I learned picked up some proficiency in turning them with the skew where I had originally learned to turn them with the gouge. Once I learned the technique for the skew, the blanks required a LOT less sanding to finish them up nice and smooth!
