Since I sold a few of the mini pens at the first two fairs I decided to replace the stock.
The first pic shows the mini twist type the other 2 are of the mini keychain kit that has a screw on cap. These are new to me, just got them last week. I really like that they turn and assemble very quickly, though I may have to cut a few thicker blocks as the 3/4” they recommend does not leave much wood to work with. the other thing I like about them is that they use a standard slimline length tube.
I sliced the Rainbow blanks out of a larger chunk of wood I bought at Woodcraft the others are all from wood that I have cut at work; the 2 twists are Curly Willow, 1 of the others is Hydrangea I am not sure about the other 2.
Have a fair this weekend and next then we are done for the season. Course now I have to clan up my shop and make a few Christmas Gifts :)
