in the shop. I am of course continuing onward with my preparations for the craft fair. I got all of my tic-tac-toe boards hinge pins installed and just need to sand them down. I bought some Soy based stain to possibly use on the ox-yoke puzzles, have a sample drying right now. Has anyone ever used this stuff? Any thoughts?

I managed after changing out the paper on my disc sander to get all of my blanks ready. I have a pen mill but really don’t like how hard it is to judge the end of the tube with it. So at this point I think i am going to stick with the disc sander. Also made this guy for help organizing the blanks throughout the process.


I saw something like this in “The Pen Turner’s Workbook” by Barry Gross I decided on the stepped approach since I had made them for something else and I like that it holds a good number that are easily seen.

So hopefully get to some turning this week, as well as finishing up a number of the games and puzzles.

Short and sweet tonight, actually I think I will head into the shop for a bit and work on some puzzle prep. You all have a good night and some good shop time this week.
