Happy Father’s Day to all of you dads. Hope it is a good day spent with family. My daughter decided she would like a few new pens so we took some time this afternoon to make some. The multicolored blank came from Rockler and I really like the way it turned out. I did most of the work on that one and she did much of the work with my guidance on the purple heart one. The little one now has a string tied to it and it is tied next to her booster seat in my truck so she does not have to worry about losing another pen in my truck :).
The 4th picture shows a pen for a different father, Father Jim is leaving the church next week and I wanted to give him a going away present. This pen is made from local Honeysuckle, he is the priest that married my wife and I and baptized our daughter. I am not Catholic but he has always made me feel welcome.
The last pic shows 2 pens that my DW is taking with her on a business trip this week because a bunch of people were admiring her personal pen last time she was out there. They are both local woods and completed with kits from Craft Supplies. I really like the Gun Metal finish on the new kits.
Thanks all for looking.
