Several years ago I made up some box elder pen blanks and never did anything with them… Neat color, probably will need some stabilization. Any interest in them? I could dust them off and take a few pics.

Hats off to those working in small shops - 6 replies

I enjoy checking out other lumberjocks work space and projects. Most of my work is usually done on the job site out of my van or in a couple of shops that I have access to.
