Hey guys, careful with those pens, they are addictive, its possible to make more than a couple an hour. We are talking IMMEDIATE SATISFACTION. Well then the future gifts start pileing up. Then the next thing you know you owe somebody a lot of money for pen kits, cause you feel like you cant live with out turning another pen, then when you run out of kits to make, you start taking pictures, and posting them on LJ, then you want to make more, and they start really pileing up, next thing you know a guy named Vinny shows up to break your kneecaps, but you are armed with a slimline….

So they are trying to hook you in with a freebie. (Who is this? Craft Supplies out of Utah?)
Getting three at one shot?
I know at least one guy they hooked. (I was already hooked)
Good folks to work with.
I highly recommend their rub on finish.

Great to see you at the show and glad you’re posting here at LJ’s. Thanks for watching the booth. I expect to see those pens when you’re done making them today. I also expect to see you cut a set of dovetails. See you at the show. Keepn up the good work and get out there in the shop once in a while (other than to raid your dad’s toolbox).
