« Part 1: Hope to keep this up Part 2 of Wednesday Wkshp series Part 3: I made it in to the shop »

So after having to be out in the rain last evening bailing out my yard to keep it from leaking into the basement window I really did not have the energy to get into the shop or do much else. Good news is mission was successful.
I was able to get myself into the shop this evening though and continued where I had last left off after the weekend in preparation of a bunch of blanks.

I like to make blanks in larger batches and do all the prep work so when I have a few minutes I can get some pens turned with little fuss. So tonight was all about getting the squaring up done. As well as cutting some other blanks for 7mm projects, I will be drilling and gluing them up this weekend since my order of kits just came in.

In other news a bit on safety in the shop. When is the last time you checked your first aid kit or extinguisher? I happen to just glance at mine the other day an realized it was almost expired.

They last a long time but not forever. Take a look at yours. I was able to pick up a two pack for around $30 well worth the investment.

That’s quite a stock of pen blanks. And good reminder about the first aid kit & fire extinguisher. I checked when we moved, and everything is good for at least five years, but it’s nice to have a reminder.
