This weekend was the “Turn for the Troops” event sponsored by the local Woodcraft. I have only turned one pen before and thought it would be cool to do another one for a good cause. My wife liked the idea and agreed to turn one as well. While talking to Lee from Woodcraft we found that a few young kids had turned some earlier and he would be glad to help if our daughter wanted to try her hand. She likes to work in the shop a lot as mentioned in previous posts of mine so she wanted a turn. So we were able to turn 3 pens to send to troops. Each one got a tag to write a note on as you can see in the third picture.
We all had a lot of fun and I have been asked as to what supplies I have to be able to do some more pens at home. I have a feeling I will finally be setting up that lathe of mine, hope I get some time on it as well. :)
Thanks to everyone there, and more so thank you to our current troops and those that have served.
