A few years ago, Elon University replaced the flooring in their Alumni Gymnasium. Lucky me, I was there to pick up some of the old wood. Now it’s being turned in to pens, keychains, wine bottle stoppers and any other small “gift” I can think of. This is made from the PK-PEN kit from Penn State Industries and will hopefully find a good home soon. (I have just dipped my toe into the online seller world at Etsy.)
I have found that no matter how messy and disorganized my shop becomes, I can always find space to turn pens. So when I just have to get my mind straightened out, but the thought of cleaning up to be able to work on a larger project just drives me screaming out of the garage, I turn on the mini lathe.
Thanks for looking at this!
