« Part 27: What I like to make Part 28 of 52 Weeks series Part 29: In the shop and working on it.. »

Ok, So since I am trying to conserve some Flickr space I am just going to refer you to my project for pics. So that being said, the two pens I worked on last night and today were made out of a ficus tree that used to stand in a building at work. The trees were replaced last year some time and I made sure to keep a few logs. As I mentioned in my blog , I liked that the one piece had a knot it and was quite happy to see that it turned out pretty good and left a cool little mark in the pen.

I mentioned a few weeks ago that I had made a pen out of Honeysuckle but broke it during assembly. Try as I did I could not salvage it. How does one easily disassemble a pen? I do have some additional Honey Suckle and hope to make a few more pens out of it soon. Also planning to try to microwave dry some blanks to try some of the more recent stuff that has been cut down. Any tips anyone has would be great.

Well that is it, even though it is a day late. Everyone have a good week.
