Yes here are more “pen”dants I really do like these kits. The other reason for these is it is teacher appreciation week next week at my daughter’s school and the PTA has asked for donations to give out to teachers and faculty. So the first two pens you see here are on the way to the school. The others are going into my inventory.
The first pen is a mystery exotic.
2 is holly that I placed in a baggie of dye over night then let air out. Blue is the school color.
pens 3&4 are Zebra wood but I dyed pen 3 on the lathe.
pen 5 is the same as 1 but dyed
pen 6 is laminated pink plywood
pen 7 was a surprise in the wood but I like the way it turned out (pardon the pun)

Thanks for looking.

Looks great. I got my kits some time last week and plan on making them today. Have an event for selling on Saturday and hope they sell. My plans are to sell them as necklace not key chains.
Haven’t forgot about your blank or blanks just been real busy trying to get ready for this upcoming event.
Hope all is well with you and family
