This is want I have to do over the next year… Thank you to a generous donor my business is going to be able to donate over 140 hand made pens to the Freedom Pen Project next year! If you don’t know what it is, it is a project that donates hand made pens to U.S. Troops that are servicing around the world!!! This allows them to have a one of a kind quality pen to write letters to friends and family members! I am also making a line of pens that I will donate a portion of the profits to this project. My goal is to take 200 completed pens to the Freedom Pen Turnathon next July here in Dallas!! I am so excited about doing this!! Thanks for looking and all comments are welcome!

How can a base register to receive pens?

Well not sure.. I am involved through my local turning club in dallas. Here is some info the website is… The website doesn’t seem to be up, not sure what is up with that. Here is the woodworking forum that I think started the movement. It would be awesome if we more people got involved!!
