After messin around with that 10000kt Walnut ring, I made this small necklace from some pen blank cut-offs, all sorts of woods. It’s just an assortment of different sized, and colored woods on a piece o rawhide. It could be worn as a bracelet also. Thnx for lookin. As always, good, bad and/or ugly comments are appreciated. In pic 5, I had a lil boo-boo. It was one of the nicer pieces which brought out a few choice shouts to the dust Gods.

Nice job Roger. That’s a lot of little turning.

Nice work Roger! It’s always nice to find something to do with the cut-offs. You made your cut-offs worth something and they look great!

Very nice and Very Creative Roger…! Cut off pieces and scraps should never be thrown away….Next thing you know we will all be saving the sawdust.

Just goes to show – no matter how small, a piece of wood can be used for something! Nice project!

Nice job on the “scrap-let” or is it a “scrap-lace” ? You did it good whatever you wanna call it.

Looks like you have a few more in that scrap jar too!

The dust gods understand when something like this happens. You think they want it any more than you do. Keep up the great work and may it please the gods of dust as much as it does the rest of the world.
