I was making a few pens to be given as door prizes at the Mason Dixon Woodworkers Club Annual Banquet.

I posted earlier the Desert Holly pen and in this post I’ve made. These were all made from California wood.

Lower – Pistachio,
Next – Carob,
Next – Wild Cherry,
Last – Claro Walnut.

In the second and last picture the Desert Holly pen is also posted.

Nice pens, Karson.

Just finished a bunch for my doctor’s office. Used a piece of the Sapele you gave me.

Lisa: These are all from Penn State Industries out of Philly, PA They are called PK-Mont or Executive style.

All You will just need to buy all of the tickets. Or you could just buy one from me and be assured of getting one.

Nice looking pens Karson. They should be well received. If you ever get a chance to acquire some Reindeer
Antler – they make beautiful pens. I’ve tried most of the antler and found that the Reindeer works the best.

Hi karson,

I don’t believe I ever met a person so generous and so willing to give things away.

I’m sure there is a very special place in heaven for you, my friend. (when you do finally get there).

Nice pens.
